CRANFORD—The Friends of the Cranford Public Library are sponsoring a lecture by Phil Jaeger, “Dining With History” on Tuesday, Feb. 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center, which is located at 220 Walnut Avenue.
The program includes information about New Jersey restaurants, as well as restaurants in neighboring states, that began operation as long ago as the 1700s. Jaeger will recount the origins of many notable dining establishments, and also present exterior and interior views of the restaurants as they appear today. He will also point out nearby attractions of interest and provide a directory containing contact information for each restaurant discussed in the program.
Jaeger is the author of two books, “Montclair: A Postcard Guide to Its Past” and “Cedar Grove.” He is a trustee of the Cedar Grove Historical Society and a former trustee of the Passaic County Historical Society.
This marks Jaeger’s fourth visit to Cranford, where he has also presented programs on the castles of New Jersey, the mills of New Jersey, and New Jersey’s deserted villages. Admission to the program is free and all are welcome.
