A Sweet History of Hoboken: The Cake Boss put Hoboken on the national culinary map, but did you know that Hoboken has been a confectionary powerhouse since the mid-19th century? It’s such a rich (and tasty) legacy, the Museum has traced a history of the city through its commercial bakers, candy manufacturers and family-owned bakeries, including a smorgasbord of immigrant groups’ food customs.

Maps are a form of universal communication, providing information not just about where people lived, but how they lived. In an exhibit titled Mapping the Territory: Hudson County in Maps, 1840 – 2013, the Hoboken Historical Museum uses maps to examine the development of the County from a group of small, agricultural townships to one of the most densely populated, as well as industrialized, counties in the state. The exhibit has been extended through the end of September.
