Point Breeze Estate to Become Park Preserving Bonaparte Connection!

Exciting news for Bonaparte enthusiasts! The monks who have long owned the former estate of Joseph Bonaparte in Bordentown, New Jersey, have sold it to the state, which will convert it into a public park including a museum devoted to the estate's history. A major focus of the museum will of course be King Joseph's time there, with a many artifacts donated (lent?) by a private collector. An anonymous donor from France has contributed $10,000 toward the project.
I am especially excited because (when there is not a pandemic) I usually in Southern New Jersey several times a year and I have long thought about writing to the monks to ask if I could pay a visit, but have never worked up the courage.
