You’ve got to love New Jersey. What other state in the union would have a building shaped like and elephant and a ship made out of concrete? Brilliant.
On Wednesday, May 22, at 7:30 PM at the Cranford Community Center at 220 Walnut Avenue, The Friends of the Cranford Library will host regional historian and photographer Kevin Woyce. There is no charge for attendance, and attendees are sure to learn some fun facts about the jersey shore – just in time for summer and visits to our local beaches!
Woyce will offer a colorful tour, complete with original photography and vintage maps, of the interesting and unique history of the jersey shore. Learn about things of historical significance, such as storms, pirates, and shipwrecks. See points of interest and learn their stories, such as lighthouses, boardwalks, hotels, resorts, and amusement parks. You can even find out how various seaside communities got their names. Many things which very well may have been a regular part of your summer beach experience may have stories behind them you weren’t aware of.
Why not check it out and be entertained? You might already know all of the interesting stories about the Jersey coast, but come anyway, just to be “shore.”
