      Mid-Century New Jersey: The Garden State in the 1950s.

      Join us for a dynamic new exhibit featuring the Garden State in the 1950s. The postwar boom led to an atom-powered future of gleaming appliances and fast cars! The influence of 50's culture is still going strong today, with many roots in New Jersey.
      The Cornelius Low House/Middlesex County Museum is a Historic National Register home built in 1741 for Cornelius Low a wealthy merchant of Raritan Landing.
