Now Open! Surveying the New Jersey Landscape

New Jersey’s beautiful landscape offers its residents many reasons to celebrate. From the Great Swamp, to the coastal Jersey Shore, to the mountain ranges, our state’s scenery is diverse and eclectic. But how have people come to learn and understand this land over time? METC’s upcoming Main Gallery exhibit, Surveying the New Jersey Landscape, will feature historic maps, surveying tools, and other accounts that provide us with a unique lens through which we can better understand and honor our relationship to this precious land. Click here to learn more about our new Main Gallery exhibit!

METC receives an operating support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State
