THE PEPPER-KNIGHT HOUSE (HISTORICAL BUILDING)

 
 
The Pepper-Knight House, located on Carranza Road, was built around 1860 by Gilbert Knight who had a blacksmith shop. The other half of its name is taken from the last owner of the property, Arthur "Skinner" and Clara Pepper. The building was purchased by the Township after Clara's death in 1987. The Tabernacle Historical Society leased it and had it declared an historic site with the idea of creating a museum for the area. To date, the Tabernacle Historical Society has raised money to shore up the foundation and add siding, put in new windows, doors, security bars and has renovated the interior as well.
 
Meetings of the Tabernacle Historical Society are held the second Thursday of each month at the Town Hall Municipal Building at 7:30 PM.
 
Decorative plates commemorating local historical landmarks are available through The Tabernacle Historical Society. Please click on link for photo of these plates.
