Historic Speedwell pursues its mission through restoration of the site, artifact collections, exhibits, guided tours, school programs, and special event programming. Historic Speedwell reflects and complements the goals of the Morris County Park Commission, which include preserving local heritage and protecting open space, while maintaining its historic role in the global development of telecommunications.
