Dear Friends,

Here at the Lebanon Township Museum, community is at the heart of everything we do. From displaying local art and artifacts, to inviting historians to speak and children to make candles . . . creating community is what makes it all so worthwhile.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Museum will be closed to the public until further notice. We are going to miss our visitors but will continue to strive to connect with the public.

Home and getting bored? Bummed that you didn't get to see our exhibit celebrating 100 Years of Women's Suffrage? We will be sharing an album of the exhibit soon.

Are you helping children with remote learning? Share our album with them and learn together about the long struggle to ratify the 19th Amendment. There are also lots of resources on the NJ Women Vote 100 page. Check out our Lebanon Township Wordsearch below and keep an eye out for coloring pages we will be sharing soon!

We hope that this time is spent in good health enjoying the company of your loved ones and we look forward to seeing you again in the spring!

Easter Postcards - Did you know that sending Easter postcards used to be a popular trend? We have several beautiful ones in the Museum’s collection to share with you.

Boredom Busters: Download our Lebanon Township Word search filled with township related names and words! If you get stuck and need the answer key, email Gina at museum@lebtwp.net.

Want to make your own word search? Try https://www.lakeshorelearning.com/resources/free-resources/word-search or your own creativity to make one!

Once upon a time, Lebanon Township Junior Girl Scout Troop 430 rallied all of the Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette and Senior troops in the township to help create a coloring book. The result was not just a coloring book but also a history of Lebanon Township and they named it “Once Upon a Township.”

Now you can download this coloring book and learn and color, too! You might recognize some of the names of the Girl Scouts, leaders, individuals and businesses that helped support the project. Check out page 15 if you’d like a laugh!

If you didn’t get a chance to see the Threading the Needle exhibit in person, you can see it here.

Events

Batter Up! The Museum’s next exhibit will be all about baseball! Do you have any vintage baseball uniforms or equipment that you might want to have on display?

We also are looking for photos of people playing baseball: on teams, in back yards, professional pictures, snapshots, vintage, new . . . anything goes!

If you have any items or photos to share, please email Gina at museum@lebtwp.net or call (908) 638-8523 x405.
