Ridgewood NJ, TONIGHT is one of our most popular walking tours from last October: “ARTS and ARCHITECTURE”
What Time: 6 pm.
Where We Meet: the “Art Barn” (Ridgewood Art Institute) at 12 East Glen Avenue (at the corner of Oak and Glen).
Join RIDGEWOOD WALKS for an exciting and informative tour through some of the most historic and unique structures in the village, that also house nonprofit art and history organizations. Tour Ridgewood Art Institute’s historic building and learn about many professional and amateur artists who hone their craft inside this spectacular Ridgewood gem. Next, head to the Art Gallery at the Stable, the building that once housed the horses of Ridgewood’s aristocrats. Look around the interior of this rustic structure and enjoy the many pieces of art by local artisans. The next stop is the Bolger Heritage Center for Genealogy and Local History at the Ridgewood Public Library. They house a stunning amount of information about Ridgewood—they may even have historic information about your street or house! The interior walls are covered with photos of our village’s past. Our final stop is the James Rose Center on East Ridgewood Avenue. The JRC is by far the most unique building in the village. There is simply too much to say about the James Rose Center, it is truly spectacular.
