Secret Gardens Tour 2018

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Hoboken Historical Museum

  • 3 people are interested
Garden Tour 2018

We need volunteers to staff our Annual Secret Gardens Tour, Sunday, June 3, from 9 am - 4 pm. Rain date is June 10. The tour is self-guided this year, so we need volunteers stationed at each of the 10 tour stops (and 2 bonus stops) in 2.5-hour shifts to help greet visitors at the door and direct them through the homes to the gardens. No need to be a green thumb -- the gardeners or a gardening expert will be stationed in each of the locations to answer visitors' questions. The gardens this year are lovely, and every volunteer will earn a free ticket to visit the other gardens before or after their shift. Also, volunteers are invited to an appreciation picnic for garden hosts and volunteers in the Museum's breezeway after the tour, starting around 5 or 5:30 pm.

Mission Statement

The Hoboken Historical Museum advances the understanding and exploration of Hoboken history, culture, and architecture. The Museum educates by collecting, preserving, and interpreting artifacts and oral histories, both historic and contemporary, that reflect the life of the city. The Museum documents Hoboken’s physical and cultural heritage, which has local, regional, and national significance. The Museum collaborates with other organizations with similar interests, while maintaining permanent space(s) suitable to the Museum’s mission. Through this, the Museum serves the people of the city of Hoboken and all those who enjoy its history and culture.

Description

The Hoboken Historical Museum (est. 1986) collects and displays artifacts in themed exhibitions on Hoboken history and offers educational programs, lectures, tours and hosts films and plays. We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Recent exhibits have included a focus on Hoboken's relationship with the Hudson River and its role as a sweets producer. Other exhibits included shipping history, an anniversary of the movie "On the Waterfront," the city's contributions to the world of music, and its struggle and revival through the 1970s. Our upper gallery space features six local artists' work per year.

We are open six days a week in a 2,000-square-foot space in one of the oldest buildings on Hoboken's waterfront, the former Bethlehem Steel machine shop, now known as the Shipyard.

We also publish books and walking-tour maps, as well as a series of oral history chapbooks documenting the diverse communities of Hoboken's recent past. Each exhibit offers a tailored curriculum for local schools and groups of youngsters.
