Maritime History Comes Alive

400 years of Lumberton maritime heritage comes alive with an entertaining, one-hour “micro-history” voyage into the town’s fascinating past. Cretaceous-dinosaurs such as the Mosasaurs once swam marl-lined, waterways. Then along came homo sapiens. Agriculture, mills, mining, lumbering, shipyards, and, of course, recreational use churned the tidal waters. This lively presentation showcases how Lumberton anchored the livelihood of communities along the South Branch.

We look forward to seeing you at the LHS meeting on Feb. 21st. Please feel free to contact Elaine at Lumberton Historical Society for further information. www.lumbertonnjhistoricalsociety.com

Lumberton Historical Society Presentation

400 years of unique, maritime heritage, 6,000 years of Native American habitation and, of course, before that we had those fascinating dinosaurs. Today, a nifty hovercraft provides rescue for people on the S. Branch at Lumberton during a recent flood.

Lumberton’s connections to the Rancocas Creek and to commercial markets and peoples far and wide speaks to its heritage. A vibrant, one-hour discussion, with a “please touch the artifacts” exhibit, aims to enhance public access to the creek while improving overall water quality. Please help us “pass the word” for this mid-winter gathering of friends and neighbors at the Lumberton Historical Society!
