Kingston Firehouse, 6 Heathcote Road, Kingston, NJ 08528
After a brief business meeting, George Luck will give an illustrated talk on fires in Kingston and the history of the Kingston Volunteer Fire Company.

A showing of D&R CANAL Videos with additional commentary Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

was featured at the Kingston Historical Society meeting at the Kingston Firehouse.

After some background on the D&R Canal and its past and present importance to Kingston, KHS president Robert von Zumbusch led us through two videos: one, “D&R,” produced and directed by Cliff Crawford in 1976 — before the Canal Park was established; the video included historical footage and interviews with ‘canalers.’ The other, “The Canals of New Jersey,” produced by the Canal Society of New Jersey, provided a comparison with New Jersey’s other navigational canal, the unique Morris Canal, which was very different from the D&R.
