CHATHAM, NJ - The annual "History & Hops" celebration isn't quite entrenched as a Chatham tradition just yet, but it's getting there.

The Chatham Borough Historical Society made its bid to carve out its own fall niche with the second annual "History & Hops" celebration attended by about 160 Chatham residents on Friday night at the Fish & Game Club.

Good food, a variety of beer and wine, the televised Yankee game and musical entertainment provided by Chatham residents "Sal Arnuk and Mike McLaughlin Unplugged" with special guests Chris Tomaino and Bobby Tambo, made it another successful event for the Chatham Historical Society.

Attendees received a souvenir "History & Hops 2017" beer glass, which many used during the event to taste the selection of beers from around the world and locally brewed by Chatham's own Twin Elephant Brewing Company. Tim Besecker, one of the owners of Twin Elephant, was on hand to help pour and talk about his brew.

The Chatham Historical Society used the occasion to celebrate Chatham's Architecture, displaying photos of the various architectural styles in which "the growth of Chatham can be traced," according to the informational brochure offered at the event.

The "History & Hops 2017" Committee included: Amy Crandall, Helen Ann Rosenfeld, Cheryl Leverich, Karen Hoerrner, Joyce Martinsen and Kathleen Sims.

In Praise of Chatham’s Main Street

November 17, 2017

To the Editor:

Could Chatham Borough’s Main Street commercial district be better? Of course, it could. But upon reflection, I’m amazed at how good it is!  

It’s cheerful and incredibly convenient. I’ve never failed to find parking behind the Post Office, which is such a short walk to the main strip. My family uses at least six of the restaurants ...
