When the owner of the team that became the Brooklyn Dodgers passed away, the team was left in turmoil. The 1898 Brooklyn Bridegrooms season was one of transition, and Allaire, N.J. played a big part in it. The Bridegrooms had their spring training there that year. The presentation will describe various theories that led to their presence at Allaire, the personalities that made up the team, the team's experiences that spring, and the implications for the team had they not been able to train there.

Unexcelled Portraits: Monmouth County Families Captured by Monroe Edelstein will feature local photographs from Monroe Edelstein. We are showcasing his work thanks in large part to members of the community who have loaned their personal Edelstein portraits to this exhibition. Assisting with the exhibition is Edelstein's daughter, Councilwoman Aimee Humphreys of Fair Haven, who has retained an extensive archive of her father's work. We would like to thank all of the families who shared their personal portraits in order to make this exhibition possible. Tickets to the Friday evening opening reception are $75. Please call 732-462-1466 x. 19 to purchase.

Beginning in the 1880's, African American singers and musicians performing in Monmouth County brought to life the sounds of spirituals, jazz, gospel, doo wop, rhythm & blues and soul. In addition, venues in the county played important roles in the careers of dozens of internationally known Black music stars- Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Claude Thornton, Sonny Greer and more. Through rare photos, recordings and artifacts, this exhibition traces these stories.
