New Friends Group donates display to Jockey Hollow Visitor Center


From the Friends of Jockey Hollow:

Leslie BensleyManaging Director of Friends of Jockey Hollow (FOJH), reports that it has made its first contribution to Jockey Hollow at Morristown National Historical Park (MNHP).

In late June 2022, a new digital display system was installed at the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center to better assist people by providing user-friendly information about everything there is to see and do while visiting the park.

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

Content includes important park notifications, an events calendar, instructional videos and even local weather conditions.

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

“We’re grateful for our new partnership with the BJH and excited to deliver this project just in time for the summer season,” he said Thomas RossSuperintendent, MNHP.

“It’s gratifying to see our initial efforts bearing fruit,” said Bensley. The project fits perfectly with the mission and goals of the newly formed Friends of Jockey Hollow.

FOJH serves as an independent organization dedicated to the protection, preservation and promotion of this valuable National Historical Park whose environmental quality, recreational value and historical importance keep our rich cultural heritage alive for the enjoyment of present and future generations of visitors.

Jockey Hollow grounds are currently open daily from 8am to 8pm, while the Visitor Center is now open Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm. All parks and facilities at Morristown National Historical Park are free.
