Livingston Bicentennial Committee Seeks Pictures and Artifacts

Residents are encouraged to share their historical documents and pictures for the township's 2013 anniversary.

Livingston is gearing up for its 200th anniversary and the township's Bicentennial Historical Committee would like residents to share photographs, documents and other artifacts connected to the community's history.

The committee is holding a document and picture scanning session 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. today in the local history room of the Livingston Public Library, 10 Robert Harp.

Pictures depicting "then and now" moments, family members and anything else connected to Livingston would be appreciated, said Patty Arnold, the bicentennial historical committee chairwoman.

The committee would also like to create exhibits featuring local artifacts and members of the public are encouraged to bring items in for a photograph and possible display next year in a glass exhibit case.

Arnold said the items can be anything historic or objects that are important to "the history of Livingston and life in the town." Some interesting artifacts that have been brought in include a horse buggy, an old-fashioned bedwarmer and candlestick, she said.  

Other document and picture scanning sessions will be held later on in the year and that information will be available on http://livingston200.com/.

For more information, contact Arnold at (973) 992-1180 or email part333@aol.com.
