Many years ago, Mr. Ken Trowbridge worked at the Mount Hope Mine, located in Rockaway Township. This mine dates back to the Revolutionary War when rich iron ore was vital to the Continental Army for making weapons. Mining continued at this mine throughout the 1800s and 1900s, and in 1944, modern facilities were erected on the site to accommodate the strong demand for iron during World War II.

Mr. Al Heath, currently a trustee to The Historical Society of Old Randolph, grew up in Victory Gardens. Al will share his life experiences about Victory Gardens, the borough and community named for the gardens that loyal Americans planted to assist with food for the war effort during the 1940s. We are expecting a large crowd for this presentation and will be holding it outside on the museum lawn (weather permitting). Please bring a lawn chair with you.
