On Sunday, June 8th 2014 at 4:30pm Macculloch Hall Historical Museum welcomes Bonnie-Lynn Nadzeika to present “Greetings From the Past: A History of Morristown Through Postcard Images”. Ms. Nadzeika’s presentation is based on research conducted for her 2012 book “Morristown,” published by Arcadia Publishing as part of its Postcard History series. For the first part of the program Ms. Nadzeika will conduct a “walking tour” of Morristown utilizing images from the 1890s to the 1960s to illustrate how the town appeared at different points in time.
