Save the Date - March 27th 2018


Historical Society Gears up for an Exciting Spring

Did you know that the first batting cage, catcher’s mask and even professional baseball itself, originated in New Jersey? On March 27 at 7:30pm in Bloomfield Civic Center, 84 Broad St, the HSOB will present historian Linda Barth speaking about her book “A History of Inventing in New Jersey: From Thomas Edison to the Ice Cream Cone.”

Learn about the New Jerseyans who brought sound and music to movies and built the very first drive-in theater, the vacuum cleaner, plastic and Band-Aids, ice cream cones and M&Ms. Barth's book will be available for sale at the event, which is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Contact 973-743-8844 or info@hsob.org for information about membership and upcoming meetings.
