On Saturday, August 29 we recorded a live podcast discussion at the community based Orange Home Grown Farmers and Artisans Market with historian Phil Brigandi, Megan Penn, Executive Director of Orange Home Grown, and Barbara Resnick of the Orange Community Historical Society.  This conversation was moderated by journalist Alyssa Duranty.

Each season 1888 will document the past, present, and future of buildings around Old Towne, Orange. Staff journalists will dig deep into archives, find inspiring images and facts, and interview community members to creatively color each story with memories. Each story will be released in three installments on the first Thursday of each month through our free subscription newsletter—The Paper Trail.
