19th Century Life in Montgomery 9/26

Posted on September 18, 2017

Join us on September 26th at 7 pm at the Mary Jacobs Library to  learn about Montgomery Township in the 1800s.   The population was a few thousand people, there was no municipal building, the unpaved roads and the bridges were maintained by the residents, and most of the residents were involved in farming. Learn about Township Committee meetings (the committeemen used to meet at local taverns), road returns, road openings, changes to Montgomery’s civil boundaries over the century, the welfare system, and maybe even a few property seizures.

Please pre-register via email at info@vanharlingen.org or call 609 924-7073 x4.  This event is co-sponsored by the Van Harlingen Historical Society and Mary Jacobs Library.
