Local Historian Don Kiddoo Presents ”Parson Green’s Remarkable Dream” at Morris County Historical Society at Acorn Hall
The Morris County Historical Society (MCHS) presents “Parson Green’s Remarkable Dream,” a lecture by local historian and MCHS member Don Kiddoo, on Wednesday, March 19 at 2 p.m. at Acorn Hall. Mr. Kiddoo will share the story of the Reverend Jacob Green’s influential dream, in his own words, which occurred nearly 275 years ago and helped change the course of Morris County history.
Parson Green was an important citizen of colonial Morris County. He served as a parson for the schoolboys and farmers who became soldiers in the Continental Army. In addition to the hundreds of people he ministered to, Parson Green also greatly influenced the Reverend Ebeneezer Bradford, who is the central figure in the Morris County Historical Society’s docudrama, Hard Winter. Copies of Hard Winter are available for purchase in the Society’s gift shop.
The event’s admission fee is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $3 for students. The event is free for MCHS members. Admission includes a tour of Acorn Hall following the lecture. No advance registration is required. Acorn Hall is located at 68 Morris Avenue in Morristown.
