On behalf of the Grover Cleveland Birthplace Memorial Association (GCBMA), I am sorry to report that due to this Coronavirus outbreak, all scheduled events for “President Grover Cleveland Week” have, for the time being, been cancelled.

The venues at which our “President Grover Cleveland Week” programs were to be held, haved cancelled most, if not all, their events for the month of March, 2020. The Roseland Library Board has cancelled all events to which senior citizens may attend for the next few weeks (including our March 28, 2020 event “The Ragged Road to Abolition” program with author James Gigatino II); the Caldwell Library has closed all events and meetings until further notice; and the state of New Jersey’s DEP has requested all historic sites to
submit all scheduled events for review to see which ones should be cancelled, if not all.

It is unfortunate that the GCBMA has no meeting spaces and had to cancell all events in celebration “President Grover Cleveland Week”. Protecting the health and safety of everyone is of top priority. The GCBMA, in cooperation with our partners, is planning to reschedule these events after the Coronavirus crisis is over, and will keep you updated in a timely manner.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and please stay well.

The Grover Cleveland Birthplace Memorial Association (GCBMA) is a conservancy and advocacy group dedicated to preserving the home and legacy of President Cleveland, the only U.S. President born in New Jersey. Through volunteer-based initiatives, our goal is to increase awareness and support of the Grover Cleveland birthplace and its heritage. The GCBMA activities include support of educational programs and lectures, interpretation and preservation of the birthplace and its collection of historic objects, and history-themed social activities which engage the public. Working in partnership with the State of New Jersey, we look forward to approval of our plan to build a Visitor Center which will provide space for educational and programming activities, as well as to display historically significant artifacts and exhibitions related to Grover Cleveland and his Presidency.
