The Chester Historical annual exhibit this year fills visitors with information about Sugar Loaf.

Visitors will be treated to a great deal of information regarding Sugar Loaf and Sugar Loaf Mountain.

The society’s display committee has taken a great deal of time to gather facts, information, stories and history and collections of not only the Sugar Loaf area, but the people who have made Sugar Loaf their home throughout history.

One of those people are the Lenape Indians who, more than 800 years ago lived and thrived in the area. The society has met and worked with members of the Ramapo Lenape Wolf Tribe who will be sharing authentic items to add to this display. This addition will enhance the exhibit greatly by showing actual items used during that time.

The Chester Historical Society will be sponsoring a program about these items and the history of the Lenape in the Sugar Loaf area on Sunday, Aug. 26, at 2:30 p.m. at the 1915 Erie Station at 12 Winkler Place in Chester.

Members of the public are invited to attend.
