We think Parker Homestead is a beautiful, picturesque spot and we welcome you to visit. Bring your smart phone to capture your moments. If you let us know that you are planning to stop by for pictures, we can assure you that there is not an event taking place (you can also check out our upcoming event schedule below).
Professional photographers are asked to contact us if they are planning a photo shoot. There is an hourly fee or a yearly license available with variable costs depending upon the photographer's plan.
Personal or professional we are concerned about the safety of you and your subjects. Please do not climb or pose on farm equipment, be careful walking around (there are sometimes groundhog and chipmunk holes), and please show respect for our “old stuff.” Thank you!

Our Dreams for the Future
We increased our programming in 2018 and are adding
more events in 2019!
The Parker Homestead is a work in progress, new volunteers
are always welcome.
Currently we are restoring the Sweet Potato frame with a matching grant from Monmouth County Historical Commission.
We host several clean-up days throughout the year. Volunteers are welcome to come for the entire morning or just an hour. More hands make light work and we are happy to welcome new faces. We will provide letters for community service hours for high school or college students who need it.
