October 23, 2018 Events Comments Off on November Membership Meeting to Focus on RCA Designer John Vassos

The Historical Society of Haddonfield’s next general membership meeting will feature a presentation by author Danielle Shapiro on influential RCA designer John Vassos.

For this meeting only, we’ll be gathering on a Sunday afternoon — November 11 at 2 pm — at the Lutheran Church of Our Savior, 204 Wayne Avenue, Haddonfield.

Shapiro will be discussing industrial designer John Vassos, who designed more than 100 products during his career, including the cabinets for the first commercial television sets, iconic phonographs and radios, and the famous “Musicorner” for the America at Home Pavilion or “Living Room of the Future” at the 1939 World’s Fair. Her book, John Vassos: Industrial Design for Modern Life, was published in 2016.

Members are free, with a suggested donation of $5 for nonmembers. The church also asks that attendees consider bringing a canned food item for its food pantry.

Haunted Mansion Scheduled for Spooky Fun on October 30

October 22, 2018 Events Comments Off on Haunted Mansion Scheduled for Spooky Fun on October 30

It’s that time of year again! The Historical Society will host our annual Haunted Mansion at Greenfield Hall on Tuesday October 30 after the town Halloween parade, approximately 6:30-8:30 pm.

The cost is $3 for kids and $5 for adults. Tickets will be sold at the door (cash only).

For those who haven’t visited the Haunted Mansion before, we aim to make this event appropriate for elementary school aged kids, roughly second to fifth grades. We add seasonal decorations to the first floor of Greenfield Hall and offer lights-out spooky tours. Light refreshments will be available outside in the garden while supplies last.

For the second year, we’ll also be offering a Halloween story time in the garden for younger visitors who aren’t sure about taking the inside tour.

A huge thank-you to our sponsors this year: Lisa Wolschina and Associates from Keller Williams Realty and Jason Barnes from Citizens Bank.
