Pathways of History represents a collaboration between our local historical societies. Last year's included the Boonton, Boonton Township, Kinnelon, Butler and Montville Township Historical Societies. During the two-day program, a range of events took place offering visitors a chance - via walking tour, musical performance, slide shows, lectures and other activities - to experience and explore our history.
This year is no exception. Pathways of History - Links to Each Other and to the Past - returns next weekend, October 22 and 23, 2011.
