Explore the agricultural history of New Jersey and its profound influence on farming today. This program will use the museum’s extensive collection of farming-related tools to bring to life this key aspect of New Jersey’s history. It also looks at what it was like to live and work on a 19th-century New Jersey farm.
Our presenter, Danielle Crigler, is a 21st-century educator with 8 years of social studies experience in urban and suburban schools. She has her master’s in Curriculum Development and has been the Curator of Education with the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts since 2021.
