As the United States nears its 250th Year Anniversary, the New Jersey Historical Commission is hosting a series of webinars to help us better understand the American experience. “What is the American Revolution?” is the first in the series. Register here: https://bit.ly/WhatIsTheAmericanRev
#IndigenousPeoplesDay: Arriving 12,500 years ago, the Lenape were the first inhabitants of the Mid-Atlantic region; to this day, they call this area “Lenapehoking,” or “Land of the Lenape.” After the arrival of European colonists, many Lenape died of disease or migrated westward, though some remained in New Jersey, including a community who converted to Christianity and settled at the Brotherton Reservation, New Jersey’s first Native-American reservation. Today, the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation continues to keep their cultural identity alive. To learn more, here’s a link to “Sharing the Continuing Story of Indigenous Peoples in New Jersey,” one of a series of webinars in the New Jersey Historical Commission’s New Jersey’s Indigenous Voices series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BP4kfuHd3oU Pictured: “Northern New Jersey, Indian Period Tribes, Trails, Villages” by John P.

The New Jersey Historical Commission is pleased to present Exploring Black History in New Jersey: New Research and Discoveries, a webinar exploring projects that uncover and share African American history in the Garden State.

MONDAY MEETING TO DISCUSS FUTURE OF SANDY HOOK The National Park Service is in talks with Stillman Development (New York City) which seeks to convert historic structures on Sandy Hook into apartments. The developer also wants to create a convenience store to serve the needs of the residents of the proposed apartments. The 21 homes on Officers' Row would become apartments, each with three units in each of the historic homes. There would also be a convenience and liquor store. All together some 90+ apartments would be available when all is said and done. Rep. Frank Pallone (D) is against the plan because he believes the natural beauty of Sandy Hook will be in jeopardy. The Sierra Club and NJ Audubon also opposes the private development of Sandy Hook. While the NJ Audubon supports some development that benefits the general public such as lodging to enhance the visitor experience and furthers the Park’s ecological and recreational mission, the organization states it cannot support a plan that allows for permanent residential units for rental or ownership by individuals with no benefit for the general public. The Sierra Club's biggest concern is public access to the park may be limited when all the buildings are finally leased. To learn more about the development plans, there's a Zoom Virtual Meeting on Monday, November 23rd from 6:30pm to 8:00pm, to share information with the public.
