Event Description

Morris County Historical Society will officially open its new exhibit, Up in Smoke: Northern New Jersey's Worst Man-Made Disasters: 1910-1989, at Acorn Hall. This photo-driven exhibit brings heroes to light, recognizes the sacrifices of those lost, and illustrates the varied events that brought communities together, tightened safety regulations, and changed legislation nationally.

On Thursday, Oct. 10, at 6 pm, Jeffrey S. Paul, director of the Office of Emergency Management will be on hand to shed some insight into what drives some among us into such a dangerous service, often risking their lives for people they've never met. Open Wednesdays and Thursdays, 11 am - 4 pm, and Sundays, 1 - 4 pm.
