Glover Fulling Mill Park Heritage Tourism Potential
The Glover Fulling Mills archeological site in Haddon Heights NJ is a remarkable survivor from the 18th century. The unexcavated site was set aside as a one acre passive recreational park by the Borough in 2016. We assessed the archeological site’s heritage tourism potential to prepare the Borough for welcoming visitors and helping them understand its history and significance.
This assessment report identified specific actions that the Borough can take to interpret this important archeological site for the public. This report discussed live and self-guided interpretation, creation of a website for the Park as well as social media options. The report detailed first steps and possible funding options for additional programming. An intern created a visitor services map showing the location of various visitor services within one mile of the new park. The New Jersey Historic Trust provided funding for this Assessment of Heritage Tourism Potential project.
