150 Years of Hudson County History

As part of its 150th anniversary, The Jersey Journal issued a special supplement that contained articles and photographs highlighting the past century and a half of this county. Included are the most influential people, major landmarks, and the 25 most significant stories. More than a few of the pieces were co-authored by Patrick Shalhoub, our periodicals and government documents librarian and Carmela Karnoutsos, a retired NJCU history professor.
