A Bit of Meadowlands History

In coming weeks, we will post items from our old Meadowlands¬† Oral History Blog, beginning with weekly Black History Month posts and then three months of “Marsh Memories.”

We thought we’d kick off the posts with this act of legislation authorizing the creation of the New Jersey Sports and Entertainment Authority and ultimately the Meadowlands Complex, which apparently is home to some big game this weekend.

The first signature on the document is that of Richard W. DeKorte, for whom DeKorte Park is named.

The second is Thomas H. Kean, who went on to become governor.

We will have a blog post about Richard DeKorte in March.
