MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ -- The Middlesex County Office of Culture and Heritage invites you to a special President’s Day program honoring America’s leaders.
This free event will take place on Sunday, Feb. 26 at the Indian Queen Tavern in East Jersey Old Town Village, located at 1050 River Road in Piscataway.
The program will have two shows: 1 and 3 p.m. Join us as Neill Hartley, of American Historical Theatre, portrays President Woodrow Wilson.
Wilson was the President of Princeton University, Governor of New Jersey and the 28th President of the United States.
“This is the first of a series of WWI commemoration events to be held at East Jersey Old Town and the Cornelius Low House through 2018,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, chair of the County’s Business Development and Education Committee. “I look forward to this and the many other upcoming events.”
Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios added: “If you’re looking for a way to learn about history that goes beyond looking things up online or in a book, this program offers the feeling of live theater combined with expert historical research. I urge all those interested in history or curious to learn more about our nation’s presidents to attend this event.”
