Happy Birthday!

By M+E Staff

New Jersey is celebrating a big birthday this year – 350! Just like individuals or companies that honor an achievement or milestone, the state is indeed celebrating its age with a big event.

Of course, New Jersey knows how to celebrate and it’s not limited to one night; this celebration last all year long! The NJ Historical Commission has framed the year-long celebration with three themes: innovation, diversity and liberty.

Innovation stands for New Jerseyans like Thomas Edison and his invention of the lightbulb as well as Frank Sinatra and Count Basie for their innovative contributions to the arts. Diversity showcases the many different places and people that comprise the state and Liberty features the deep Revolutionary War roots.
