I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Meadowlands Museum

What: Meadowlands Museum 

Where: 91 Crane Ave.
             Rutherford, NJ 

Who: All ages

The Meadowlands Museum is a museum dedicated to the history of the Meadowlands region of New Jersey. It is located in a historic three-level 19th-century house that originally belonged to a family that was one of the earliest to settle in the area. Currently, only two floors of the museum are open, however. The museum consists of a combination of permanent and temporary exhibits.

Permanent exhibits include an exhibit devoted to William Carlos Williams. The exhibit focuses on both his career as a writer and poet and his medical career. Williams was actually born and raised in Rutherford. 

In the basement of the museum, there is a colonial kitchen exhibit as well as various tools. Items on display include an early refrigerator and the mechanism device from an elevator that was installed at nearby stable in the early 1900s.  

The current special exhibit features minerals and rocks of the region. It includes a number of beautiful colorful specimens as well as information about quarries in the area.

The museum is currently open by appointment only and mask-wearing is required. To schedule a visit call (201) 935-1175 or email MeadowlandsMuseum@verizon.net. For more information, go to www.meadowlandsmuseum.com.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
