On Friday, May 9th Macculloch Hall Historical Museum will be participating, for the first time, in National Public Gardens Day. 

First celebrated in 2010 National Public Gardens Day was established by the nonprofit American Public Gardens Association (AGPA) and the Rain Bird Corporation, a manufacturer and provider of irrigation products and services, based in California.  The purpose of the day is to promote environmental stewardship, plant and water conservation, green spaces, and environmental education in communities throughout the United States. 

GSL's Speakers Bureau

Summer may not quite be here yet, but it’s never too soon for history groups to start planning their autumn and winter program schedules!


Garden State Legacy can help! We just updated our GSL Speakers Bureau and can offer over 30 quality speakers on a wide variety of history-related topics.


The directory includes such useful information as how far a speaker is able to travel, if they need a stipend or travel expenses, what their AV needs are, etc. - all information you can use to find the best speakers to meet your needs and budget!
