Always in Season - Sussex County

A Classic Vermont Vacation. All this Vermont footage was shot on location in Sussex County, New Jersey. Wait a minute! This IS New Jersey! ME3TV presents this video for your viewing pleasure. If you live here, please DO NOT share this video with a lot of outsiders. They'll all want to come here to live. If they are your relatives, who live in some Middle American town, you will no longer get sympathy letters from them. You will no longer be their "poor East Coast orphan". You can't milk them for fruit baskets and care packages anymore. I suggest you send them the video of a Manhattan Cab ride and tell them you live just a short distance from metropolis. It will help you maintain the aura of intense humanity and stress. Below are some of the links related to this film. DO NOT click on them or send this blog post to anyone using the envelope link underneath the post to the right. DO NOT write comments about the video or this post using the 'comments' link below either. People will get word about this and start breathing OUR air under OUR sky. Let's keep it quiet, shall we? But, if you insist - nobody will punish you.

Diary Update - 1910

The Local Historical Society acquired this diary from the Town Clerk, who retrieved it from the old town hall attic. (The old town hall will soon be destroyed when the new one is completed and occupied). The diary is dated from 1900. Marjorie Strohsahl reads from it in 2003.
NOW THERE IS AN UPDATE! The author is discovered!
It turns out, the son of Mary Carrier Griswold (the author) lived in Lake Mohawk (Sparta, NJ) and died here. Somehow, this diary, a part of his belongings, came to be in the possesion of the township and found its way to the town hall attic. Mrs. Griswold died while vacationing in Florida in 1965. She was then a resident of the Merriam Home in Newton, New Jersey. She was a member of the Newton Presbyerian Church. At the time of her diary (1900), she was then recently married to Rev. Tracy Beadle Griswold and was living in Auburn, N.Y. His second pastorate was in Albany, Oregon, but we think this diary relates only to Auburn. Mary Carrier Griswold - 1872 - 1965. A PDF file is HERE, so you can read more about this amazing woman. Please feel free to add your comments using the link under this post!
There are more presentations by the Sparta Historical Society that will appear soon. (type "history" in the "search this blog" box above left) Short history features and the film "Voices of The Land" are available on DVD. You can order HERE.
