The Bowne House
East-West Daniel Cha
History of The Comunity 10/7/09
The Bowne house is a historical monument to free religion here in flushing. It is was the beginning of free religion all over the country. On September 30, 2009 participated in the reopening of the Bowne house, senators, governors, and the city council man John Liu attended the reopening. It was history in the making. The thing is that the reopening of the Bowne house was pretty much fun even if we were talking to elderly people and all alike that came. We talked about how the Bowne house was the starting point for religious freedom, and agriculture of different plants from all over the world.
People don't know what the Bowne house truly is and it is our duty as a community to tell people about it, spread the word that the Bowne house was the beginning for flushing. Without it flushing wouldn't be flushing, and it would exist as it is now if not for the Bowne house. At the reopening we of course gave information about the remonstrance and explained what it was about from old english to modern english. People of all ages were informed about the remonstrance and what it was about the people were glad that they came to the reopening and learn things that aren't known to the general public.
Our class had fun telling people about the remonstrance and what it was about at first i thought that it would be pointless and not that important but knowing that it was a historical monument was something else. Being there was above what I expected and fun in a most awkward way. But none the less was it a great experience to have felt. Knowing this will probably let people give a different look at Flushing and how important it was to agriculture of diverse plants and the beginning of free religion. For not Bowne house there really wouldn't be a great amount of religious diversity.
The trip was a once in a lifetime experience if u want to include John Liu coming and what not.
either way it was still fun to go to and people should now know what happened in Flushing.
