($) EARLY RECREATION: ENJOYING THE SOURLAND REGION
At a time when there were social and economic changes – and landscapes in the area were also changing, people began interacting with the natural world in different ways. The Sourland region became a popular destination for city folks, hunters, hikers and nature lovers alike.
These social changes and other fascinating stories about early recreation will be the topic of a presentation by Jack Koeppel. Koeppel’s program, Early Recreation: Enjoying the Sourland Region, is drawn from a collection of 700 photographs (originally 4” x 5” glass plates) discovered in an old home in Pennington, NJ.

  ($) GHOST HUNTING IN EAST AMWELL
The Paranormal Activity Research Society of New Jersey (PARS) has been ghost hunting in East Amwell, and are ready to share their spooky discoveries with you. PARS members will show you the tools of their trade -- cameras, K2 meters, REM-Pods and more. Then they'll tell you about their visit to the Clawson House before discussing one of the most haunted homes they've ever investigated: a 1760 farm house in East Amwell. They will play for you the eerie audio voices and a conversations that occurred while no earthly being was in the room, and then show you what they captured on camera. Don't miss this fascinating program!

The International Geophyscial Year, Pictures from Antarctica
The International Geophysical Year lasted from July 1, 1957 to December 31, 1958 and marked the end of a long period during the Cold War when scientific exchange between the East and the West had ceased.  Hunterdon County author and historian, John Kuhl, was in the Navy during this period and was aboard a ship in Antarctica -- talk about a Cold War!  A historian even then, John recorded his voyages via both camera stills and movie reels.  Never seen by the public, John will be playing these incredible films and pictures via a powerpoint presentation while describing his adventures in one of the most hostile and wild places on the planet!  Refreshements follow

History of HighBridge with Author William Honachefsky
Local author William Honachefsky will be presenting a talk and book signing for his new historic postcard collection book "High Bridge" at the North County Branch Library on Wednesday, March 29th at 7pm. The history of High Bridge is intertwined with the development of the iron and steel industry in the United States. As early as the 1700s, the framework of this little hamlet had already been created by English investors who carved up the rich wilderness of the New World, brimming with iron ore that would be essential to the county’s development. High Bridge Borough evolved around the Taylor Wharton Foundry, established in 1742. With the passage of time, however, High Bridge has lost its farming and foundry roots, evolving into what is often referred to as a bedroom community. Just like the lofty trestle from which High Bridge derived its name, the city now runs the risk of being lost to time, forsaking the resilient character of the immigrants who forged a nation. The book is filled with 19th and 20th century postcards of a bygone era in the borough. William Honachefsky, of Clinton Township, is a lifelong resident of Hunterdon County and a passionate advocate for the protection of the state’s natural environment and historic heritage. He has served on the New Jersey 350th Commission and Union Forge Heritage among others.
