Saving Tallman Park & the Palisades: From Controversy to Conservation
The Paramus Public Library at 116 East Century road will be exhibiting a collection of seven art panels depicting the rich history of the Palisades Interstate Park beginning June 1, 2017.

The collection is entitled “Saving Tallman Park and the Palisades: From Controversy to Conservation” and curated by Geoffrey Browne, a member of the Citizens Advisory Council of the New Jersey Section of the Palisade Interstate Park. The panels will be on display at the Library during the months of June and July during regular library hours.

The panels were prepared by Lara Jacobs of the Pratt Institute of Art and cover 400 years of history. They illustrate Native Americans and the more recent past where the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs helped to stop the quarrying which was destroying the Palisades.

Visitors can learn about the park’s connection to the American Revolutionary War as well as how New Jersey Governor Foster McGowan Voorhees and New York Governor Theodore Roosevelt co-signed an agreement in 1900 to create the Palisades Interstate Park Commission.
