New Jersey Transportation Heritage Center
Becoming a reality!!
The Governor has signed the bill!!!
On Thursday June 21, 2001 New Jersey Governor Donald DiFrancesco signed the bill designating Phillipsburg, NJ as the site of the NJ Transportation Heritage Center, with a satellite site at Netcong, NJ. This is the first major step in completing the dream of an all inclusive museum for New Jersey devoted to transportation. A special Thank You to all who have supported this movement. The road has just begun and we have lots of work to still do so let’s keep working hard and educating everyone as to why New Jersey needs this now!!
