Whippany River History Hike:

Thanks to all who attended the first Whippany River History Hike along Patriot's Path beginning at Acorn Hall to the Frelinghuysen Arboretum on October 16th. It was a beautiful fall day and hike along the Whippany River to the Frelinghuysen Mansion. Special thanks to our interpretive experts -- Dave Helmer, Executive Director, Morris County Park Commission and Amy Curry, Executive Director, Morris County Historical Society.  We hope to continue to sponsor the annual history hike. If you enjoyed the experience, let us know! Or, attend one of our future events! Thanks again for your participation and happy fall!
