NJ State Parks with Kevin Woyce – Chester Library

January 14 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Lecture: NJ State Parks with Kevin Woyce

Chester Library
Virtual – Zoom Program by Chester Library
Registration is open at www.chesterlib.org

Some of New Jersey’s most exciting history can be found in our more than two dozen State Parks.

Old names such as Wawayanda and Hopatcong remind us of the Lenni Lenape, or “Original People.” Historic battlefields recall New Jersey’s perilous years as “the Crossroads of the American Revolution.” Abandoned forges still speak of our first great industry, and we can trace the beginnings of our transportation network in the paths of the Morris and the Delaware & Raritan Canals. The slide show includes my original photographs of many of New Jersey’s beautiful state parks, plus vintage maps and images of historic people, places, and events.

Please be prompt, as this is a structured and informative class. The Zoom platform is time-sensitive and late-comers may have difficulty entering the session.
