On Saturday, June 15th, Friends of Crawford House and the Historical Commission hosted its annual Juneteenth celebration. The event featured distinguished keynote speakers Rick Geffken, author and local historian, Claire Garland Director, Sand Hill Historical Association, and Lorraine Stone, a Monmouth County actress, writer, dancer and storyteller.

Compelling stories were shared about the lives and histories of enslaved people in New Jersey, including those who labored on the Morris family's Tinton Manor estate. These narratives provided a significant glimpse into the past, illustrating the profound impact of slavery on local communities and its historical evolution.

Reflecting on the history of the Crawford House during Juneteenth holds special significance. The Crawford House is situated on land that was once part of Tinton Manor, an ironworks established by Lewis Morris in the late 17th century. Morris, a prominent figure in New Jersey's colonial history, who was not only an industrialist but also a slave owner. His ironworks heavily relied on the labor of the enslaved people.

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, commemorates the emancipation of slavery in the United States. Acknowledging the contributions and suffering of those who were enslaved at Tinton Manor brings vital local context to this National Day of Remembrance. During the celebration, a Memorial Stone donated by Ivan Durham and family, was unveiled. The stone was installed at the site believed to be the burial grounds of these enslaved individuals to honor their memory.

Today, the Crawford House serves as a community resource, providing educational programs and a space for local activities. It stands as a reminder of the past and a symbol of the ongoing journey toward understanding and reconciliation.

Council President Risa Clay and Councilwoman Tracy Buckley attended on behalf of the Borough, alongside other community members, marking a day of reflection and hope for the future. Special thanks to Stacey Slowinski of the Historical Commission for coordinating this presentation on Juneteenth.

🌞 Prepare for the Heat! 🌞

As we gear up for the upcoming hot temperatures, it's important to take some steps to ensure you and your loved ones stay safe and comfortable. Here are some tips to help you prepare for the heat:

☀️ Preparation Tips for Hot Temperatures:

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate:
Stock up on water and drink plenty throughout the day. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water daily, and more if you're spending time outdoors.

Check Your Cooling Systems:
Ensure your air conditioning units are in good working order. Clean or replace filters and consider having a professional check-up. If you don’t have air conditioning, consider visiting public places like malls or libraries to stay cool.

Create a Cool Space:
Set up a cool room in your home where you can retreat during the hottest parts of the day. Use fans, curtains, and cool packs to help keep the temperature down.

Stock Up on Essentials:
Make sure you have enough groceries, medicines, and other necessities to avoid having to go out in the heat. Non-perishable food items and frozen treats are great to have on hand.

Dress Appropriately:
Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing made of natural fibers like cotton. Don’t forget your hat and sunglasses if you go outside!

Plan Outdoor Activities Wisely:
If you need to be outside, try to do so early in the morning or late in the evening when temperatures are cooler. Always take breaks and find shade whenever possible.

Check on Vulnerable Neighbors:
Make sure elderly neighbors or those with health conditions have the resources they need to stay cool.

Learn Heat-Related Symptoms:
Familiarize yourself with the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke, such as heavy sweating, weakness, dizziness, nausea, and confusion. Seek medical help immediately if these symptoms occur.

🌡️ Stay Informed:
Follow local weather updates and heat advisories.
Know where your nearest cooling centers are located.
Keep emergency contact numbers handy.

By taking these steps, we can all stay safe and beat the heat together! Share this post to help others get prepared too.

Forging History: Asbury Park Academy of Engineering Students Build Replica of Historic Tinton Falls Blast Furnace

A group of high school juniors from the Asbury Park Academy of Engineering recently achieved something truly impressive: they built a working replica of the blast furnace once used at the historic Tinton Falls Ironworks. Their model was unveiled at the Crawford House, where it was presented before the Historic Commission, Borough Council President Risa Clay, and Borough Administrator Charles Terefenko.

The Historic Blast Furnace
The blast furnace at Tinton Falls Ironworks, established in the late 17th century, was a cornerstone of early American industry. It played a key role in the country's economic development by producing iron essential for tools, construction, and machinery. The furnace operated by smelting iron ore with charcoal and limestone at high temperatures, producing molten iron and slag. This iron was then cast into various products, supporting both local needs and broader colonial demands.

The Project
Under the guidance of their teacher, Kevin Gould, the students delved into historical research to accurately replicate the design and operation of the original blast furnace. They spent the past few months preparing, designing plans, and sourcing materials to ensure authenticity. Using modern tools and techniques, they created a scaled-down, functional version of the furnace that not only demonstrated the technical process of iron production but also honored the historical significance of the Tinton Falls Ironworks.

Unveiling
The unveiling at the Crawford House was a proud moment for the students, their teacher, and the community. The model impressed the Historic Commission and Borough Council and Administrative Officials, highlighting the students' dedication and hard work.
Kevin Gould praised his students for their enthusiasm and effort. He noted that the project provided a hands-on way for them to engage with local history and understand the technological advancements that shaped America's economy. He commended their attention to detail and commitment to accurately replicating this machine.
Impact
This project not only offered a detailed understanding of how a blast furnace operates but also highlights its integral role in early American industry. It stands as a tribute to Tinton Falls' rich industrial heritage, inspiring a deeper appreciation for the engineering achievements of the past.
The Mayor, Council and Administration proudly recognize the remarkable efforts of these students. Their commitment to this project has showcased their engineering talents and brought a piece of the town's history to life. Their creativity and teamwork have resulted in this achievement that the community can cherish and learn from.

This model will be displayed at the Crawford House, 750 Tinton Ave, Tinton Falls, New Jersey. We encourage everyone to visit and appreciate this impressive piece of work. Thank you to the students and their teacher for making Tinton Falls proud!

On May 29, 2024, the Borough of Tinton Falls received a $20,000 grant from Sustainable Jersey and PSE&G Foundation to develop an Environmental Resource Inventory (ERI) for our community. The borough was awarded this grant due to the efforts put forth by the volunteers on Tinton Falls Environmental Commission.

The grant presentation took place at The College of New Jersey and TFEC members- Ellen Goldberg, Barbara Kulberg, and Tatiana Swenda, along with Borough Administrator Charles Terefenko attended the event and were presented with the award. Councilwoman Tracy Buckley, a member of the TFEC was unable to attend this event, however Ms. Buckley was instrumental in the application process for this grant.

An ERI provides foundational documentation for assessing and addressing resource protection issues. It acts as an objective catalog and description of environmental features and their functions. Recognizing significant environmental resources is the initial step in their protection and conservation, ensuring that future development or redevelopment efforts promote public health, safety, and welfare.
