The Chatham Historical Society has placed a display cabinet in the hallway at Borough Hall to share items currently unavailable for public viewing. The first exhibit contains Civil War artifacts.
The Chatham Historical Society is always looking for photos, books and artifacts to add to its collections. But today, we have a special project!
In mid-July Susan Allen and Heidi Huston, co-presidents of the Chatham Historical Society, saw their hard work and perseverance pay off when our new archivally correct storage cabinet arrived at Borough Hall.
Inspired by one of our past programs, "A Walking Tour Through Chatham's Past at Fair Mount Cemetery," board members Amy Crandall and Christine Grobert put together a special field trip for all fourth graders from Lafayette School. Using the cemetery as a unique setting to teach some local history, the program featured drama students from the High School, dressed in period costumes, performing short narratives in the vicinity of various final resting places of influential people from Chatham's past.
