Liberty State Park CRRNJ Terminal
July 30th, 2019 marks the 103rd anniversary of the Black Tom Explosion. Join us for a tour and discussion of the dynamics of the land known as Black Tom then and now, and how the events leading up to the explosion served as a catalyst for America’s entry into World War I. Artifacts recovered from the site of Black Tom will be on display.
We will meet at the Info Desk inside the CRRNJ Terminal for an introduction and then drive over to the Black Tom site for the second half of the program. Limited transportation will be available to the site, so please be sure to contact us to reserve your space. You may also follow in your own vehicle.
Pre-registration is required. Groups of six or more, please call for special arrangements. For more information or to register/reserve transportation, please call 201-915-3400 x202 or email LSPNatureCenter@dep.nj.gov.
