@FarHillsRace - You say this is the 99th running of the FHRM. This means that the 100th running will be in 2020. Does this mean the Race started in 1920 or does it mean 1916 but was not run 4 times? Our records show another number. https://t.co/5YAwNSzrYM https://t.co/gAB01QoSD9 mrlocalhistory photo

1917 - National Service Night in Bville
On this day in local history: An assemblage of townsfolk and people from neighboring villages, numbering nearly 3,000, were on hand in Bernardsville on Thursday night, Oct. 18, 1917, to observe “National Service Night.” The ceremony began with a parade from Depot Square to the Bernards High School baseball fields and featured home defense organizations from local towns escorted by the Bernardsville Infantry Company and led by the Chester Brass Band. At the baseball fields, lit by flood lights, there were speeches on Liberty Bonds followed by a simulated battle which, “with the exception of blank cartridges” for shells and bombs, “was carried on realistically.” Source: Bernardsville News #dayinhistory #mrlocalhistory

On this day in history: On October 16, 1965 the secretary for Jacqueline B. Kennedy confirmed former first lady “is leasing a small farmhouse Thursday, Oct. 21, 1965. the former first lady “is leasing a small farmhouse in the Bernardsville-Peapack area for the fall and winter months,” The News reported in a front page story on Thursday, Oct. 21, 1965. The secretary, Pamela Turnure, said in a statement that the site was served by private roads and would be used “solely as a weekend retreat.” Mrs. Douglas Burden owned the house but lived there only part-time, since she and her husband had other homes in Washington and Vermont. A week earlier, The News reported that Mrs. Kennedy, joined by two Secret Service agents, had taken a limousine from her Fifth Avenue apartment in New York and visited the home of former Treasury Secretary C. Douglas Dillon on Larger Cross Road in Bedminster. The visit fueled reports that Mrs. Kennedy might be interested in a home in the area. Source: Bernardsville News #dayinhistory #mrlocalhistory
