“Across the Centuries” Puts Union County History at your Fingertips

Union County, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders invites residents and visitors to engage with Across the Centuries, an online guide to historic sites throughout Union County. The online format is designed for easy viewing on mobile phones.

“The rich history of Union County draws adventure seekers from near and far, and the new phone friendly format provides convenient access to enriching information about our heritage,” said Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados.

Across the Centuries includes information about dozens of historic sites featured in Union County’s annual Four Centuries in a Weekend celebration. The two-day event includes special tours, presentations and activities. This year, Four Centuries in a Weekend takes place on Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21.

For the first time, Four Centuries in a Weekend will also include special tours of the Bell Labs Technology Showcase and Union County College’s William Miller Sperry Observatory, an astronomical observatory that houses two of the largest telescopes on the East Coast.
