FLORHAM PARK, NJ- The Little Red Schoolhouse Sesquicentennial is far from over as the Florham Park Historic Preservation Commission has lined up a fun and informative event focusing around the Little Red Schoolhouse’s move in the 1970s.

The event will be an exploration on Florham Park’s rich past of moving buildings and the whys and wherefores that facilitated these impressive feats. Historic Preservation Consultant for the Little Red Schoolhouse, Margaret Hickey, will outline what it takes to move a historical building and the planning involved to keep and protect the buildings once they are relocated.

In addition to this, Jenna Solomon of the New Jersey Historic Preservation Office will speak about the influence of moving a historical building on its placement in the historic registry. It is no simple process. From the brick and mortar to the preservation and historical designation, moving a building like the Little Red Schoolhouse is in a league all its own.

"I'm looking forward to this event," said Suzanne Herold, Chair of the Historic Preservation Commission, "A number of buildings and houses have been moved in Florham Park, including the Little Red Schoolhouse and the Afton Firehouse. This is an exciting opportunity to learn about what goes into moving a historic building."

Finally, the Historic Preservation Commission will present some pictures from the move of the Little Red Schoolhouse and share some of late Mayor Ralph Lovey’s memories from his time in charge during the relocation. The former mayor has been a pillar of the community for decades and his insight into the move is sure to be worthwhile. Councilman John Massarano will also have a story of his own for all in attendance.

The event will take place this Sunday, March 19th in the Florham Park Public Library Akhoury Room at 2:00pm. Light refreshments will be provided to attendees and Little Red Schoolhouse commemorative merchandise will be available for purchase to show your support for Florham Park’s most iconic landmark.
