A History of Mansion in May


Sunday May 20, 2018
2:00 PM
The North Jersey History & Genealogy center presents noted author and historian W. Barry Thomson. Thomson served as the history consultant for several previous Mansion in May events, including those at Alnwick Hall -- The Abbey in 2017, Blairsden in 2014, Glynallyn in 2012 and Froh-Heim in 2008.

He will discuss the hstory and significance of several mansions, as well as the beginnings of All Souls and Morristown Memorial Hospitals in the late 19th century, and the key role that the newly formed Women's Association played in hospital funding.

"Mansion in May" is the flagship fundraising event of the Women's Association of Morristown Medical Center. Organized and run by an all volunteer group since 1974, Mansion in May events have netted more than $12 million for the hospital to better serve our community's healthcare needs.
