Reminiscent of 'Ragtime', historical figures mingle with common folk to tell the story of a young upstart country about to take the center of the world stage. 

George M. Cohan, John Philip Sousa and Scott Joplin are just a few of the great American composers celebrated in this musical pageant."

Buccino Talks 'Notables' at Nutley Museum March 19

Nutley Historical Society, 65 Church Street, Nutley NJ

7 PM Thursday, March 19, 2015

NUTLEY N.J. -- Local author Anthony Buccino will speak about his latest book, Nutley Notables: The men and women who made a memorable impact on our home town, Nutley, New Jersey, at the Nutley Historical Society meeting in March.

Buccino says Nutley Historical Society support was instrumental in bringing the Nutley Notables book to fruition. The author has set aside for the Nutley Museum one volume for as many as possible of the Notables to sign and it will be archived in the museum's special collection.

At the NHS meeting in March, Buccino will talk about the historical and current figures profiled in his new book and also solicit suggestions from attendees for notable Nutley profiles to include in volume two of the local history collection.

"This volume has about 200 Nutley notables profiled and I already have a list for volume two. That list is about six pages and I'm going to look up every name and see just how notable they are," Buccino said.

Notables profiled in the book are invited to the talk and will be asked to autograph an archive copy for the museum. Anyone with copies of the book are also invited to collect Notables signatures, too.

More than one dozen Notables have already signed the copy and this special copy will be on hand at all Buccino's talks this year. A limited number of copies will be available for purchase after the talk. Buy yours online and bring it to be signed.

Vreeland Homestead

226 Chestnut Street

The Junior Woman's Club of Nutley used the house for its functions from 1912 to 2012. The Vreeland House recently changed hands when the Junior Woman's Club of Nutley turned over the property to the township of Nutley, N.J., in May 2012. The town placed oversight of the 200-plus year-old house in the hands of the Nutley Historical Society which will inventory the parts, parcel and frame the artifacts in the historical sense.


Events held at the Nutley Museum unless otherwise noted.

The
Ann A. Troy Gallery-Nutley Museum is open four times a year, and tours are available on request.
