Call the Historical Society at (973) 596-8500 between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm, Tuesday – Friday, and ask for the Education Department. When leaving a message, please make sure we have your information; name, school, phone number, grade level, number of people and e-mail address. The e-mail address is important so that we can contact you throughout the day and answer any questions you may have without disturbing your classroom time.
