On your mark, get set…
and get ready for an exciting new FREE event that is scheduled to take place in Cumberland County, New Jersey, starting on July 1, 2016! A Race Through Time was designed to encourage visitation to some of the amazing historic sites located within the county. It’s premise is simple:
Beginning July 1, visitors can register at any one of the thirteen participating sites and receive a guidebook and passport that they must get stamped at a minimum of six different sites before August 28. Once they have that number, they can be entered in a drawing for prizes, which will be held on August 28 at the Cumberland County Historical Society’s Lummis Library in Greenwich. Contestants do not have to be present to win.
Along the way, participants will be asked to post photographs of themselves on the event’s web site and/or Facebook page, both called A Race Through Time. Updates for the event will be posted regularly.
The historic sites, spread throughout the county, will take visitors from the days of the Lenni-Lenape to World War II. Participating sites include: Cumberland County Historical Society, Vineland Historical Society, Millville Historical Society, Bayshore Discovery Project, East Point Lighthouse, Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center, Woodruff Native American Museum at Bridgeton Library, Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Museum, Millville Army Airfield Museum, Mauricetown Historical Society, Port Norris Historical Society, Palace Depression, and Seabrook Educational and Cultural Center. Admission is free at most sites, although donations are welcome.
