Epstein came to Frenchtown in 1977. As editor of the Delaware Valley News, he learned much of his history from chatting with the old timers. He also read all the history books and even unspooled some microfilm in the cellar of the county library.   “I tell about the Great Fire of 1878 and the time Sarge Russell’s wagon shed blew down on Louie Gelegonya’s Ford Falcon, which was around 1979,” says Epstein. “I can also show you an old leather mask used in the mystic rites of the Odd Fellows lodge, and explain how the guillotines of France sent our founder running to America in 1794.”   Because hot weather is likely, Epstein has arranged for all the talking and listening to take place in shady places. “The tour takes about 70 minutes unless everyone decides they want the long version,” says Epstein. For more information about the tour, call 908-200-0480.   Riverfest is organized by the Frenchtown Business and Professional Association; and sponsored by TD Bank, Stem Brothers, Shenberger Insurance, H.J. Opdyke Lumber and River Mills at Frenchtown.   Worried about parking? Valet bike service and free park and ride from Artie’s Free Park and Walk from DesignPlan Lighting.   Riverfest will be held on Sunday, September 4th starting at noon.
