LIVINGSTON, NJ - In honor of Livingston’s Bicentennial celebration, artifacts and historic maps regarding the town’s history will be moved from Township Hall to the Senior/Community Center as of Friday.

Amongst the artifacts, the exhibit contains family tree boards and family descendant information regarding the founders and some of the first residents of Livingston.

"This is an opportunity to see the story of the people behind the historic names around town - Force, Squier, Ely and others," said Scott Maynard, a co-chair of the Bicentennial Committee. "The amazing thing is that so many of these families are still a part of Livingston."

According to Patty Arnold, chair of the Bicentennial Historical Committee, the exhibit truly explains how the township of Livingston came to be.

"We have a wealth of information that shows us how lifestyles have historically evolved to the modern day and how a variety of small hamlets joined together to ultimately become Livingston Township," Arnold said.

According to the Livingston Communications Coordinator, Judith Heller, the exhibit would not have been possible without the help and contributions made from Bicentennial Historical Committee members, Barbara Schaffer, Lorraine Palmer, Patty Arnold, Renee Resky, Rick Meeker, Pat Meeker, Bud Schweinberg, Harold Kravis, Betty
Weber and Russ Jones.

Heller explained that the theme of March’s ongoing celebration is “Getting Greener” and an Environmental Film Series will take place at the Livingston Library throughout the month.
