Welcome to History Notes, our weekly feature that looks at Egg Harbor Township history. Each week, we get a chance to learn or reminisce courtesy of Lynn Wood of the Greate Egg Harbour Township Historical Society, who shares early photos of places in Egg Harbor Township with our readers.

The society will host Call of Duty, a military timeline of 200 years, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, July 29 on the grounds of the museum, 6647 West Jersey Ave. Re-enactors of wars throughout history will set up exhibits. A Holocaust survivor will share stories, and there will be a World War II-type aircraft flyover. The event will also feature military firing demonstrations and a Ben Franklin impersonator sharing his inventions. This free event features food, music, speakers, drills and more.

The museum/library is open 1-3 p.m. on the first Saturday of every month and every Sunday. Go to gehthsmuseum.org or the Facebook page for “Greate Egg Harbour Township Historical Society Museum.”
