About the Event

Artists, captains of industry, showmen — all were among the men and women who, from the time of the Civil War through the Great Depression, had unique and often lavish homes built upon the precipices of the New Jersey Palisades.

Using newly discovered letters and diaries transcribed from the Miles family, the story of the grand estates — and the families and servants who lived at them — now comes into vibrant focus.

Through images and narrative, Historic Interpreter, Eric Nelson of the NJ Palisades Interstate Park Commission will present the tales of grand stone mansions that stretched for twelve miles along the clifftops.

There will be a Q&A after the program.
