Thank you, Jim!

Jim Hamilton, award-winning designer, restaurateur, our friend, and beloved member of the Lambertville community, passed away on February 2, 2018, leaving behind a remarkable legacy of achievement, and a dream yet to be fully realized.

The revitalization of Ely Park was Jim’s last civic project. He imagined the park as a beautiful, vibrant green space that would beckon people of all ages to gather, relax, play and connect as a community. More about Jim…

As the ultimate “thank you” to the man who did so much for Lambertville, won’t you please help us make Jim’s vision a reality?

Help thank Jim
