Support the renovation of the historic Newark Train Station by joining us on April 6th for the 2nd Annual Founders Day 5k. Newark History Museum celebrates Founders Day on the first Sunday in April (or close to it) to honor the signers of the original Newark Charter in 1758. Benefitting the Newark Historical Society, the Train Station will serve as the turnaround point for the course.
