Spirit of the Jerseys State History Fair - Saturday May 12, 2012 - 11:00 am, Titusville, NJ



This year, the Township of Ocean Historical Museum will be making its second appearance at the “Spirit of the Jerseys” State History Fair at Washington’s Crossing State Park in Titusville, NJ. Join us at our tent and browse the collection of treasured artifacts from our township’s past. Our museum store will be at the fair offering various museum wares from books to t-shirts.

Volunteers will be... on hand to illustrate the township's history, as well as demonstrate crafts such as spinning, weaving, and old fashioned children's toys & games. Mrs. Phoebe Woolley will regale visitors with stories and songs from the 18th Century on her folk harp.

The “Spirit of the Jerseys” State History Fair started as an event commemorating the 100th anniversary of New Jersey's state owned historic sites. Its purpose is to cultivate the public's awareness and appreciation of NJ's historic resources by providing visitors with the opportunity to experience history in a fun and engaging manner. 2012 marks the 8th year of the fair, and annual attendance has averaged 5,000 visitors. Last year over 130 exhibitors participated in the event, including the Township of Ocean Historical Museum!

This year’s fair will include a juried Art Show, Antiques Appraisals, a colonial magic show, and more! Each year the Fair attracts exhibitors from all around the Garden State. The State History Fair is a fun-filled adventure into New Jersey's past that is appropriate for all ages.
