New Friends Group donates exhibit to Jockey Hollow Visitor Center


Friends of Jockey Hollow:

Leslie Bensleygeneral manager of Friends of Jockey Hollow (FOJH), reports that he made his first contribution to Morristown National Historical Park’s (MNHP) Jockey Hollow.

At the end of June 2022, a new digital signage system was installed at the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center to better assist people by providing user-friendly information on all there is to see and do during the park visit.

The state-of-the-art 65-inch high-resolution monitor is configured with a cloud-based content management system that will be updated regularly.

Content includes essential park notifications, a calendar of events, instructional videos, and even local weather conditions.

The FOJH, working in partnership with Morristown NHP, learned in late spring that having a monitor like this would provide information desk staff with an additional tool; the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center is often busy, especially when tour groups arrive.

“We are grateful for our new partnership with the FOJH and are happy to have this project in place just in time for the summer season,” said Thomas RossSuperintendent, MNHP.

“It’s gratifying to see our first effort come to fruition,” Bensley said. The project fits perfectly with the mission and objectives of the newly created Friends of Jockey Hollow.

FOJH serves as an independent organization to protect, preserve and promote this valuable National Historic Park, whose environmental quality, recreational value and historical significance keeps our rich cultural heritage alive for the enjoyment of current and future generations of visitors.

Jockey Hollow’s grounds are currently open daily, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., while its visitor center is now open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All grounds and facilities at Morristown National Historic Park are free.
