Mount Arlington Historical Society Website

This site was created and is maintained by students at the Mount Arlington Public School.   The program was funded in the fall of 2012 by a generous $6800 grant from the local historical society.  It was created for a project called My Town Through a Child's Eye. 

In the first year of the program students reviewed records donated to our school as well as on-line digitized records available in the New Jersey state archives  to create an on-site archive and museum showcase.  The students created a detailed PowerPoint presentation which was presented to local residents, members of the Mount Arlington Historical Society, and showcased at the Morris County Historical Society.  In addition, project boards were displayed at our local library.  The tabs listed on the left will bring you to the work the students created.

Special recognition is made to Mrs. Jo Ann Gardner, former president of the MAHS, all life time members of MAHS, and our Mayor Arthur Ondish for their enthusiastic support of the program as well as to local historian and museum curator Marty Kane whose articles are posted on-line on many regional websites such as the Lake Hopatcong Foundation.   We also recognize the Davis and Rooney families for their records.  This project was coordinated by GATEWAY teacher Julie Crawford.  Research was conducted by Grade 5 students from the Class of 2016.  The site is maintained at a large font size to assist aging members.  To view at an even larger font, use the control zoom function with your mouse.
