To coincide with Fire Prevention Week, Morris County Historical Society will officially open its new exhibit, Up in Smoke: Northern New Jersey’s Worst Man-Made Disasters: 1910-1989, at Acorn Hall, Thursday, Oct. 10, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. This photo-driven exhibit brings heroes to light, recognizes the sacrifices of those lost, and illustrates the varied events that brought communities together, tightened safety regulations, and changed legislation nationally.
On Thursday, Oct. 10, at 6 p.m., a member of Morris County’s first responder community will be on hand to shed some insight into what drives some among us into such a dangerous service, often risking their lives for people they’ve never met.
Up in Smoke will be available from Oct. 6, 2019, through April 26, 2020.
MCHS is located at Acorn Hall, 68 Morris Avenue, Morristown, and is open Wednesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sundays, 1-4 p.m. Admission, which includes the exhibits and landscaped grounds, is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for students, and is free for children under 12 and MCHS members.
