This park commemorates the site where Joshua Huddy escaped from a raiding party of Tories in September 1780. Huddy's escape here is only one part of his interesting Revolutionary War story, which is explained in detail in the Captain Joshua Huddy's Homestead Site entry on the Colts Neck page. [1]

1. ^  Plaque placed by the Rumson Improvement Association in 1957.

Although this plaque states that Huddy's escape occurred on September 1, 1780, there is some question as to which day of September 1780 it actually occurred. See source note #1 on the Colts Neck page for more information.
