The Delran Historical Society received a History Recognition Award from Burlington County at the Smithville Mansion on May 12, 2017.  We were recognized for our effort to create a Historical Marker Trail in Delran.  This was a group accomplishment.  Elaine McCabe and Diane Dudek researched the background on each of the sites,  Elaine McCabe and Mal Anderson worked with residents to secure approvals for the sign installations, Delran Township paid for the signs to be printed at the New Jersey Department of Corrections, and Delran Public Works installed the signs.   Deb Hammond posted the information on each site on our website and created QR codes for a bookmark that would directly link to our website and the additional content and photographs of each site.  We celebrated the opening of our Historical Marker Trail on October 24, 2017 with the big unveiling at the Trinity Church on Route 130.

We have also added our markers to the Historical Marker Database, which includes links to our website as well as other nearby historic sites.  We are planning to add an additional 10 sites in 2017.
