May 14, 2021

The Durand-Hedden House, in partnership with the South Orange-Maplewood Community Coalition on Race, will host a Juneteenth celebration on Saturday, June 19th, as part of a MAPSO-wide program. Come to see historical reenactors from the Civil War era, be inspired by a group of Black poets, and visit the exhibit on the History of Slavery in New Jersey.

Due to the pandemic, visitors to the Durand-Hedden House and Grasmere Park will need to make timed reservations through the Maplewood Township Recreation Department. Please use this link to make a reservation for a one-hour time slot between 11 am and 2:45 pm: https://maplewood.recdesk.com/Community/Program?category=9
