The Ramapough in Mahwah in the 19th Century
with Tom Dunn
Monday, May 9 at 7:30 pm
Presented in-person & online. Registration required.
Tom Dunn, a former president of the Mahwah Museum, has spent decades studying land deeds in the county archives to document the Ramapough families in Green Mountain Valley. Families such as the De Groat, Mann, Van Horn, and others lived on this land, which is west of Route 202 and the Ramapo River in Mahwah. After working this land in the 19 th Century, they eventually relocated north to Stag Hill. This talk illustrates part of our exhibit on the Ramapough in the Mahwah Museum which can be seen currently in the museum every Saturday from 1-4pm.
This event will be presented in a hybrid format and you may register to attend either virtually or in-person (see below).
A “Ramapough– Legacy and Heritage” Program. Sponsored by the Ringwood Public Library and the Mahwah Museum and funded by a Grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission.
