About The Event
Free and everyone is welcome!
This talk begins in the 1840's and spans almost 100 years as it follows the unusual story of the McGrath family as they journey from Ireland to their homestead farm in Gillette, N.J. Involving local history of Long Hill Township, it includes the unlikely story of a small-town doctor becoming a professor at a New York Hospital only to give it all up for a higher calling. Anyone who enjoys bits of local history and has heard rumors of nuns associated with the site of the current town hall should attend.
