                                                                  A Word of Thanks

Thank you to all our exhibitors and the visiting public who made the 2016 SPIRIT of the JERSEYS State History Fair a success.  Buoyed by a beautiful sunny day, thousands came to enjoy the Fair.

Over 170 exhibitors, from all 21 NJ counties and 6 states, provided the public with a fantastic array of historical programs and activities.  From period music and living history demonstrations to 19th century baseball, military reenactors, exhibits and antique cars, there was much to see and do. Within a single day, visitors were able to explore five centuries of NJ’s history.

Hats off as well to all those who portrayed a historical figure from NJ’s past.  You brought to life many important figures who shaped the history of our state and country. In so doing, you provided the public an opportunity to “converse” on politics, military strategy, slavery, women’s suffrage, literature, black history, technology and other social and cultural issues.

It was certainly a great day for celebrating and showcasing our state’s rich, diverse history!
