Theodore Roosevelt Returns

Don’t miss Theodore Roosevelt’s resplendent return to Maplewood on Sunday, October 20, at 2:00 p.m. at Jefferson School sponsored by the Durand-Hedden House. Teddy once roamed the hills and meadows of our town as a boy exploring nature while visiting his Uncle Cornelius’s estate, now the Roosevelt Park section. Expertly played by historic interpreter Joe Wiegand, Theodore Roosevelt will come back to reconnect with Maplewood and vividly share stories of his life, family, and presidency.

Afterwards, light refreshments will be served at Durand-Hedden and there will be an opportunity to mingle with the exuberant 26th President of the U.S. The exhibit on the history of slavery in New Jersey will also be on view. The Country Store will be open until 5:00 p.m.
