Exhibition Closing

November 24 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Tracking Sandy: Monmouth County Remembers will close after exploring the impact of Superstorm Sandy on Monmouth County for over a year on Saturday, November 24, 2018.

To commemorate the 5th Anniversary of the natural disaster, Monmouth County Historical Association prepared our first ever crowd-sourced exhibition, hearing the story of Sandy from those who lived through it. Those involved in the exhibit spent the better part of a year collecting photographs and artifacts and conducting oral history interviews in order to allow all interested parties– from your average Monmouth County citizen, to scientists, to the County Freeholders — to recall the storm in their own words.

The exhibition includes oral histories presented on listening devices, interactive activities, artifacts, internet and print resources, and preparedness education. MCHA would like to acknowledge Guest Curator, Melissa Ziobro, Specialist Professor of Public History, Department of History and Anthropology at Monmouth University; and the generous assistance of many institutions and individuals in the preparation of this show.
