Livingston's Bicentennial Committee Seeks Photos and Artifacts

The township's 200th anniversary committee having another round of document-scanning sessions this weekend.

Got some special old-fashioned artifacts or Livingston photographs in the house?

The Livingston Bicentennial Historical Committee would like you to share them as part of the township's upcoming 200th birthday next year. 

The committee held three photo- and document-scanning sessions earlier this month and another round of scanning sessions will take place 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. today and 1:30 to 4 p.m. tomorrow. 

Sought items include any family pictures, Livingston business pictures, school photographs and work and household items, such as typewriters, books, or tools, said Patty Arnold, the historical committee chairwoman.

The committee especially seeks items that are connected to the township's history, such as marriage certificates, inter-generational or graduation photographs, programs from past high school productions or an item from a sold store in town, Arnold said. 

The scanned objects and artifacts will be used in a "mobile museum" that will be exhibited throughout the township next year, Arnold said. 

The first round of scanning went well, Arnold said, and more than 20 people participated. Other document and picture scanning sessions will be held next month and later on in the year. That information will be available  on  http://livingston200.com/.
