Event Description

Travel connects people to each other. Today we take for granted the cars, trains, and planes we use to commute to work, visit family, and journey to exotic places. Americans living in the nineteenth century witnessed explosive growth in transportation networks--from stagecoach routes to railroads--that made connection to others easier than ever before.

Are We There Yet? Stories of Travel by Stagecoach and Steam examines this era of expansion, featuring personal accounts of the rigors of travel in 19th century New Jersey along with a brief look at how these transportation networks were built, including the surveyors' compasses, railroaders' equipment and other tools that helped connect these early travelers with their world.
