GSL's 2017 Funding Campaign!

$1,575 of $3,500 goal

Since 2008, Garden State Legacy has been dedicated to celebrating New Jersey history with its free quarterly online magazine and website resources.

If you're not familiar with GSL, check out this video where I explain the story behind it and its mission!


GSL is FREE to subscribe to and is advertising-free. But there are expenses - paying authors, webhosting fees, buying new software. And, as GSL's Founder and ePublisher, I need to earn some income from it in order to justify the hours I devote to it...plus I need to buy treats for our two cat!

I am looking to raise a minimum of $3,500 to fund GSL's magazine and website through 2017.

By making a donation, you are not only helping to keep GSL free for the NJ history and preservation community, but also showing you appreciation for hard work of GSL's contributors!

You can donate here or, if you prefer to send a check, it can be made payable to Garden State Legacy and mailed to 375 Mt. Prospect Ave. 7C, Newark, NJ 07104.

THANK YOU!!!

As many of you know, I have been working on a book about the 1951 Woodbridge train wreck. It is now slated to be published Spring 2017. Here is a quick promo video I put together. More will be forthcoming as the project progresses. In the meantime, please feel free to share this with anyone you think might be interested in the book!

Your generous donations make articles like this possible for GSL! We can pay our authors to compensate them for their time and talent with the money raised.

For a while in 1922, America thrilled to the salacious story of a murdered monkey-collecting circus-owner in New Jersey, his former Broadway chorus girl wife, and New Jersey’s version of Sherlock Holmes seeking to answer the burning question... who shot "Honest John"?

You'll read all about it in GSL issue 34, coming out December 15th!

We have the March 2017 issue already funded, but we still need fund the remaining issues for next year, so please spread the word!

And THANK YOU!

Gotta love a NJ history article about a murder mystery that begins: "By 7:30 PM on the evening of March 10, 1922, 'Honest John' Brunen had fed his basement-dwelling monkey collection..."

That's how Joseph Bilby starts his latest article that will appear in GSL 34 this December!

Paying authors like Joe is where much of the money donated by our supports goes...so THANK YOU!
