Celebrate St. Patrick's Day At The Emporium

Home-Cooked Corned Beef And Cabbage To Be Served March 15

February 21, 2020

Emporium dealer Carol Elliott has graciously agreed to cook her famous corned beef and cabbage for an early St. Patrick’s Day dinner on Sunday, March 15, at the Historic Burlington Antiques and Art Emporium, located at 424 High St., Burlington City, N.J. Customers will be treated to a little bite of Ireland and other snacks, starting at noon.
The Emporium dealers will fill the store’s sales show case with items relating to Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day for the month of March. Shoppers can purchase decorations, items for the dinner table, and jewelry. The Emporium is a 14,000-square-foot building, home to 65-plus dealers with antiques from the 1800s to the collectibles of today. It is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Thursdays until 7 p.m. Customers can travel to the Emporium by the River Line, through many historical towns in South Jersey. The ride on the River Line is an architectural treasure trove of historical buildings starting in Camden and finishing in Trenton.
Burlington City is the oldest city in the state of New Jersey, having buildings dating back to the 1600s. As a young man, Benjamin Franklin had his first print shop in Burlington City. Author James Fenimore Cooper was born in Burlington City, and President Ulysses Grant had a home in Burlington City on Wood Street.
According to the State of New Jersey, the Emporium’s building was built between 1917 and 1924 by Edward Supper and is on the National Resister for Historic Buildings. Automobiles were sold and serviced in this large building until the late 1970s.
For anyone interested in history and antiques, both the town and shop make for a fun destination.
Happy antiquing.
