September 11th National Memorial Trail Makes Its Mark in Morris County

Posted: June 30, 2017

The September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance, in conjunction with the Morris County Park Commission, will be celebrating the unveiling of the first trail blaze on the September 11th National Memorial Trail on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.

The unveiling of the trail—a 1,300 mile tribute to first responders and those who perished on September 11, 2001—is open to the public and will take place at the Patriot’s Path trail entrance on Dolly Bridge Road in Randolph. Local fire and police departments, EMS and veterans will be in attendance.

Beginning in 2004, the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance was formed to establish a memorial trail that links both the planned and existing memorial sites dedicated to September 11th, including the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and Flight 93 Memorial.

In addition to linking the three national memorials, the continuous trail also passes through over 50 landmarks such as the Eastern Continental Divide, Delaware Water Gap, and Morristown National Historical Park, and is accessible to automobiles, hikers, and bikers. “It is a true honor for Morris County to be a part of this memorial trail. We thank those who have put in incredible amounts of time and effort into making this trail not only something for people to enjoy, but a part of history as well,” said Dave Helmer, executive director of Morris County Park Commission.

HSOR to Host Randolph Reminisces Program

Posted: June 6, 2017

The Historical Society of Old Randolph (HSOR) is pleased to announce that Paula (nee Rosenfarb) Antin and her brother, Norman Rosenfarb will be the next guest speakers in its special series of programs entitled “Randolph Reminisces.”

The public is invited to attend this free program on Monday, June 19, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Randolph Museum. The museum is located in the historic Brundage House at the main entrance to Randolph’s Freedom Park on Millbrook Avenue. Light refreshments will be served.

Paula, Norman, and older brother Seymour are the children of Isadore and Sophie Rosenfarb. The Rosenfarbs resided in Mt. Freedom. The children attended Randolph Township schools through eighth grade and then went on to graduate from Dover High School because Randolph High School was not built until the early 1960s.

Isadore Rosenfarb was the owner of farmland on Calais Road from which he operated his business as a cattle dealer and (later) as a dairy farmer. The Rosenfarb siblings will discuss their experiences growing up in Randolph. Paula will elaborate on her time spent working at Saltz’s Hotel and Norman will speak to his adventures on the farm.
