Living up to the “Cultural Center” in their location name, the Lake Hopatcong Foundation just announced the three following three new educational programs, that will be held at the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Environmental & Cultural Center.

This is following the well-attended and excellent courses from the fall that covered the Lake Hopatcong Train Station, Morris Canal and Native American history for our area.

Winter 2020 Programs:

Landing, Crossroads of Lake Hopatcong

019300141 768x583 In1Landing was once a transportation hub for Lake Hopatcong with the Lackawanna Railroad, Morris County Traction Company, and two different steamboat companies all converging to deliver passengers to their destinations around the popular resort area.  Spectacular images of the Lackawanna, Black Line, and White Line steamers, and trolley, presented by Lake Hopatcong Historian Martin Kane, will give you a whole new perspective of this area and explain just how Landing got its name.

New Jersey Highlands Rediscovered

019300141 768x583 In2See the award-winning 30-minute documentary by NJN, THE HIGHLANDS REDISCOVERED (2004), which looks at both the science and the history of New Jersey’s portion of this heavily forested region that sits inside the northeastern metropolitan area.  Water quality and quantity are the key benefits of this undeveloped region to the densely populated cities, and the forest habitat is what makes the water clean and plentiful.  Afterwards, join in an open discussion with New Jersey Highlands Coalition Policy Director Elliott Ruga on the Highlands region history and current Highlands issues.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis: Preservation and Grace, an American Legacy

019300141 768x583 In3Hosted in partnership with the Hopatcong Woman’s Club

She was a Kennedy. She was an Onassis. She did not define herself by her husbands.

As a young mother she was catapulted onto the World Stage when her husband John F. Kennedy became the 35th President of the United States. Realizing that future generations would need the insights of the past for guidance, her preservation efforts galvanized the rest of the country to protect its historic monuments. Aided by her public profile, her work helped bring about the Historic Preservation Act of 1966: the most far-reaching preservation legislation ever enacted in the United States.
