2018 IS AN IMPORTANT ANNIVERSARY
Adolph and Jeanette Strauss built the Strauss Mansion 125 years ago.
We are working on an exciting year of events which will celebrate the history of Atlantic Highlands with themes specific to the era of the home and of our area. Stay tuned! Below are some images showing what the house looked like in the earlier days and when the Board of the Museum took on the project to save the mansion.
MONTHLY MEETING, AUTHOR’S TALK & RECEPTION
Wednesday 21 March
“I Hate to Write…” and so begins the diary of Edith McCormick, an Irish immigrant at the beginning of the 20th century. Paul White a Red Bank resident has used these words to title his recently published book about his great grandmother, her life and the times that surrounded her from 1902 to 1919: The Great War; her son’s death on the battlefields of France; the modern changes happening around her.
The talk will be at the Strauss Mansion Museum, 27 Prospect Circle. Paul will have his books available at that time. There will be an opportunity to speak with him and socialize after the presentation.
This lecture series is sponsored by generous support from Ken & Doreen Frantz and & Jean Howson.
