KENILWORTH, NJ - Local historian Dr. Walter Boright visited David Brearley on May 11, to speak and present to the Middle School Academy students.

Dr. Boright used aerial maps of Kenilworth to show the growth of the town and highlight major events that shaped our community. Students worked in groups to analyze maps, identify landmarks in Kenilworth, and answer questions about our town’s past. With the help of middle school social studies teachers Mrs. Westbrook and Mrs. Odin, students were able to participate in a fun game show question and answer activity with Dr. Boright using the maps and slides.

Overall, students enjoyed learning about Kenilworth’s rich history while getting the opportunity to see historical pictures of the town’s roadways, buildings, and sites that no longer exist.
