When Did That Happen? A Look at Chatham Through the Years

Credits: TAP Chatham

The Chatham Historical Society will present a free and open to the pubic program entitled: “When Did That Happen? A look at Chatham Borough Through the Years”, on Sunday, October 18, 2015, at the Library of the Chathams. The program will begin at 2:30pm in the downstairs Lundt room of the library.

Follow the growth and evolution of Chatham from overnight stage coach stop to an important regional mill town. See how the arrival of the railroad in 1837 led to more growth for local industry, while at the same time setting the stage for the demise of others. Watch the transition of Chatham into the much sought after suburban community it is today.

This hour long presentation will trace the unfolding of Chatham through various historic and vintage photos, colorful stories and archival illustrations and will also allow a question and answer session at the end of the program.

Bring a friend to the library on October 18th. No sign up is necessary and light refreshments will be served. Chatham Historical Society books, pamphlets and other products will also be on sale.
