Event Details

 Canal Historian and Author Linda Barth weaves the story of how the Delaware & Raritan Canal  meandered across New Jersey, becoming one of America’s most successful towpath canals, carrying more tonnage in 1866 than even the Erie Canal.  Johnson & Johnson, Roebling, and Fleischmann’s Distillery all had their start along the D&R which now provides people of central New Jersey with both a water supply and an amazing recreational facility. This companion talk is beneficial for all those wishing to join us for our D&R Canal Canoe Paddle on Sunday October 4th or our Bus Tour of the D&R Canal on November 4th.  This talk is free.  Reservations recommended.  Refreshments follow.
