I have some exciting news. Barbara Young from the Friends of the Sussex-Wantage library is starting up a project to make a tour map of historic sites in Wantage. It will be modeled after the fantastic Deckertown walking tour map. The first meeting for this project is Friday February 17 at 10:30AM at the Sussex-Wantage library, 69 County Road 639, Wantage. Anyone who would like to be part of this very worthwhile project is welcome to attend and contribute your knowledge of Wantage.

Save the date – Our January 31, 2017 of the Sussex County History Alliance was snowed out so it has been rescheduled for Monday February 20, 2017 at 7PM at the Crescent Theatre, 74 Main Street, Sussex Borough, NJ. We will continue our discussion on gathering information surrounding the historical markers around Sussex County and putting it all on an interactive webpage to help boost tourism and interest in each of our organizations. This website will also serve as a research tool for schools, historians, students and all who have an interest in Sussex County history. This is a very important step forward in preserving our history for future generations. We will have handouts outlining the whole process. Please be sure to attend and tell others too. All are welcome. This event will be live streamed right here on our Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/sussexcountyhistory/.
