Call for Photos: Your Memories Can Help Bring Middlesex County to Life!

November 19, 2018
Did you or your family live in Middlesex County in the 1950s? 

Do you have treasured photographs from this time in a family album? Now, you can make them part of a new museum exhibit about our County’s history!​​

The Cornelius Low House/ Middlesex County Museum in Piscataway is preparing an upcoming exhibit about New Jersey in the 1950s. One wall of the exhibit will be covered with scans of photos from Middlesex County families- showing how they lived, where they worked and most of all, how they experienced life here in the 1950s.


“If you or your family were part of the Garden State's midcentury history, please consider making your story part of this fascinating exhibit,” said Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios.


“Our County has an incredible history which we are all a part of,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, Chair of the Business Development and Education Committee. “Your contributions will help bring this exhibit to life.”


You can submit up to 3 images for the exhibit. We do not need your original photos, instead we are asking for high-resolution 300 dpi scans or clear digital photographs taken of your images.  Please email your submissions to and include a brief description of who or what is in the photos and the locations and dates of when they were taken.​
