The community is invited to a Montclair History Open House on Sunday, April 19 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the MPOA office. Your Montclair History Committee has conducted a great deal of research on the area’s rich history and wishes to reach out to the community to share their knowledge, answer your questions, and tell a few stories. Local author and historian Robert H. Alton will discuss Civil War events that occurred on Montclair’s doorstep and will bring some relics found locally, as well as two original Civil War muskets for display and education. In addition to the relics and muskets, there will be photos, maps, and short multimedia presentations about various topics: the Civil War, Montclair’s five cemeteries, Civil War camp life, and the blockade of the Potomac. This Open House will be for those of all ages interested in history.
