Historical Society of Moorestown Presents “Beyond Shipwrecks”

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 7:00 pm

On Wednesday, February 21, 2018, at 7 p.m., the Historical Society of Moorestown, in conjunction with the Moorestown Library, will present, “Beyond Shipwrecks: Exploring a Sunken Locomotive off the New Jersey Coast.” New Jersey’s famed underwater explorer, Shipwreck Researcher Dan Lieb, returns to Moorestown and the Library (111 West 2nd Street) to discuss a mysterious find off the Jersey Coast: a sunken locomotive. You would be right to ask, “How did a train end up in the ocean?” And, “How long has it been there?” Plus, “What sorts of treasures have been discovered inside this railroad relic?” Lieb explores these questions and more as he again takes us underwater off the Jersey Coast. This event is free and open to everyone. You may register to attend the event at www.moorestownlibrary.org.

Many Moorestonians and other enthusiasts of the deep will remember Lieb’s mesmerizing November 2016 talk about New Jersey shipwrecks, which was also presented by the Historical Society in conjunction with the Library.

For further information, please contact the Historical Society at (856) 235-0353 or [email protected].
