CHATHAM, NJ - Anthony Tesoriero's 20-month service project that encompassed more than 500 hours of work culminated on Monday night with his presentation and official designation as an Eagle Scout on Monday night during his "Eagle Scout Court of Honor" ceremony at the Chatham Presbyterian Church.

The Chatham High senior presented his Eagle Scout project, a free "Tour Chatham" APP that guides people through a 1.5-hour, 14-stop driving tour of Chatham Township, Green Village and Madison.

Tesoriero developed the APP with the help of the Chatham Township Historical Society and his performing arts high school classmates, who provided the voice history included with each location on the APP tour.

"The Chatham Township Historical Society provided me with the history and a guideline for the APP,'" Tesoriero said. 

Anthony Tesoriero talks about the Tour Chatham APP he developed as part of his Eagle Scout service project

"The first half of me developing the APP, I didn't have a license so my mother (Alison Tesoriero), and one or two friends, were driving me around to get the coordinates of every turn and pictures of every single intersection," the 17-year-old said. "We mounted a "GoPro" to the front of the car. Once I got my license, I was able to finish it myself."

The downloaded free APP displays photos of each of the 14 historical sites and explains that the tour includes stops in Chatham Township, Green Village, and Madison. The history behind each location is provided with voice recordings for each historical marker. Although it takes 1.5 hours to complete the entire tour, it can be stopped and continued at any point.
