Uncovering Middlesex County History:
The 1918 Influenza Pandemic

In October 2018, a ground penetrating radar survey was conducted in a corner of South River’s Washington Monumental Cemetery that had long been associated with the 1918 Influenza Pandemic. The resulting data revealed over 350 unmarked burials in several rows. Join us as Mark Nonestied, Middlesex County Historian, provides an illustrated talk regarding the results of the survey, the impact of the pandemic on South River and the surrounding communities, and draws conclusions on the people that lie buried in this section of the cemetery. Light refreshments will be served.

7:00 p.m. at the South River Museum, 64-66 Main Street, South River, NJ
