Decoding History
Tuesday, August 11, 2020, 01:00pm - 02:00pm

This year is New Providence’s Tricentennial - let’s celebrate by going back in time!  Join a museum educator over Zoom to explore how everyday items offer an insider’s glimpse of what life was like 200 years ago. Participants will learn about 19th century life as we examine, discuss, and “decode” artifacts – ranging from shoe making tools to a candle mold –  from the teaching collection of the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts. This program was made possible with support from the Friends of the New Providence Memorial Library. To register, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
