Museum Exhibit Features Historic Politicians
of the Somerset Hills
Familiar names come to mind when we think of politicians from the Somerset Hills. Names such as Governor Chris Christie, who had at one time considered entering the race for the Republican Presidential nomination; Malcolm Forbes, who in 1957 ran unsuccessfully for Governor of New Jersey; Christine Todd Whitman, two-term Governor of New Jersey who was the first and to date only female Governor; and Thomas Kean, who also served two terms as Governor of New Jersey.
A new exhibit at the Brick Academy Museum will feature the historical politicians of the Somerset Hills (and nearby) who also played important roles in government. People such as Frederick Theodore Frelinghuysen, Samuel Lewis Southard and William Lewis Dayton, to name a few.
This exhibit starts in May and will grow throughout the year, ending on Sunday, January 20, 2013, after the Presidential Inauguration. Please stop by often to see this expanding exhibit and learn about the historical politicians of the Somerset Hills.
