Share Your Story Project

Everyone has a story to tell, and much of what we do at METC is preserving and sharing the unique stories of the people who lived in New Jersey in the past, helping us connect with each other through history. Living during this unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, we can think of no better way to help preserve history then by asking you to be a part of our “Share Your Stories” project. We hope you will share your stories, photos, and videos with us.
