Images of America: Mount Tabor, by Beth Shaw

Macculloch Hall Historical Museum is celebrating the 350th anniversary of New Jersey with book signings by authors whose work explores aspects of the state’s history.

On Sunday, June 22, Beth Shaw will be available to sign and sell the book Images of America: Mount Tabor to museum visitors during touring hours 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Visitors may also wish to visit the second floor gallery exhibit “Made in New Jersey: A Celebration of Decorative and Fine Arts” which stars the museum’s collection of New Jersey stoneware, silver, and artists such as Thomas Nast, A.B. Frost and Edward Kranich.

Macculloch Hall Historical Museum is located at 45 Macculloch Avenue, Morristown.

Book signings with other New Jersey authors will continue throughout the spring, please visit maccullochhall.org for information.

Ms. Shaw will be available to discuss the book she co-authored with Mount Tabor Historical Society members Michelle LaConto Munn, David Jones and Lori Brown. The Society took on the challenge of organizing a special collection of images for the Images of America book as a way of sharing the history of Mount Tabor, past and present. “Mount Tabor” is a detailed collection of some of the photographs, maps and brief histories of this nearly 140-year-old community.

Tucked in the heart of Morris County, an enclave of charming Victorian homes and unique public buildings clustered along narrow, hilly streets, the town pays homage to its distinctive past and embraces the community spirit of its founders. One of New Jersey’s earliest permanent Methodist Camp Meeting grounds, today Mount Tabor has become a viable community within Parsippany, welcoming people from all religions and backgrounds.

The Mount Tabor Historical Society maintains a growing collection of historic documents, photographs, postcards and memorabilia. We are pleased to display selected items in the Richardson History House, a Camp Meeting Cottage Museum which is open the second Sunday of each month from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. or by appointment.
