From Mark Slade:
This spring, Maplewood Village had the honor of being listed on both the New Jersey and the National Registers of Historic Places, the official lists of our state’s and the nation’s historic places worthy of preservation. The Village, small-scale and walkable, has been a centerpiece of Maplewood life since the late 19th century – providing food and other provisions, access to travel and education, banking and postal services, entertainment and a place for community interaction.
Be transported back in time through rarely seen photographs alongside a meticulously researched history, bringing our shared past to life. This exhibit “Charm & Necessity: Maplewood Village since 1888,” will debut on Sunday, November 20, from 1pm to 4pm at Durand-Hedden House, and explores highlights of over a century of the history of the Village, its buildings, merchants, and its much-loved character. It will remain on display at Durand-Hedden events over the next few months.
Admission to the program as well as to the house is free. Our lovely Country Store will be open for shopping and browsing.
