Don’t miss this fascinating and informative lecture at the Metlar-Bodine House Museum on Nov. 19! “Envisioning New Jersey: An Illustrated History of the Garden State” is an overview of New Jersey’s history from the prehistoric era to the present. The images of politicians, religious institutions, ethnic groups, farms and factories provide a fresh take at how the Garden State has evolved. From its rich Native American heritage, it’s pivotal role in the American Revolution, debates over slavery, the rise of industrialization, the advancements in transportation (turnpikes, canals, etc.), the creation of utopian communities and the growth of shore communities, the rise of the Ku Klux Klan after WWI to suburban development and decline of its cities, all have contributed to the multifaceted state in which we live. For more information and to register click here.
