History day to be held in Hohokus region
May 2, 2013 by James
The Northwest Bergen History Coalition has announced that its History Day will held in a couple of weeks’ time in Hohokus and its surrounding towns. This marks the third consecutive year of the event.
No doubt the organization is using poster printing and flyer printing to make area residents aware of this event, the proceeds of which will benefit the eight historical museums and homes that will be participating in History Day.
Included in the sites that will be open to the public include the Hermitage in Hohokus, with other attractions in Ramsey, Mahwah, Ridgewood, Wyckoff, Oakland, Upper Saddle River, and Allendale also welcoming history hunters on the day. Each will have on display coverlets, samplers, quilts, and other homemade items from their collections.
Tickets can be purchased by mail or from any of the Coalition’s historical societies, as well as at each of the sites on the day of the event. For the ticket price of $10 for an adult or child, the various sites can be visited in any order throughout the day. There is no charge at all if the child is aged under 12.
Grilled hot dogs and soda will also be available at the Hopper-Goetschius Museum in Upper Saddle River in the picnic area.
The History Day event held last year by the coalition was in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. This year’s will take place on Saturday, May 18, beginning at 10:00 am and ending at 4:00 pm.
