Tocks Island: Dammed If You Do @ Sussex-Wantage
February 7 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The homegrown movement that defeated the Delaware river dam
In the early 1960’s more than 7,000 families in New Jersey and Pennsylvania were forced to sell their homes or businesses to make way for a dam and reservoir that were never built.
Award winning journalist David Pearce* tells the stories of the families displaced by the ill fated Tocks Island Dam Project, the squatters who illegally occupied the abandoned homes, and the courageous residents who mobilized a campaign opposing a giant bureaucracy.
