The Hermitage History Lecture Series offers presentations on a wide range of topics related to national, New Jersey, and local history. The presenters are college and university professors and local history experts. The lectures are followed by questions, comments and discussion.

High school students are very welcome to attend the lectures, with some teachers giving their American History students extra credit for attending the lectures. Through these lectures, students have gained increased knowledge and interest in history by being participants in public presentations and discussions of history. The lectures are an opportunity for the students to hear history presented by college and university professors.
Lectures are held at The Hermitage Education and Conference Center and begin at 7:30 pm. Please call 201-445-8311, x101, for reservations.
