Historic view of Milford Columns owner


October 25, 2012

MILFORD, PA — Dallas Grove will present a talk about the life and times of Dennis McLaughlin in the Foundation Room of the Columns Museum on Friday, November 2 at 7 p.m.

McLaughlin was the original inhabitant of what is now known as the Columns Museum. Built in 1904, the house was originally used as his summer home. McLaughlin was a prominent citizen of Hudson County NJ, and he dabbled in many pursuits. He was known as one of “the Big Four” because of his ownership in the Guttenberg Race Track, which was a place to bet on “the ponies” in the late 1800s.

A $5 admission is requested, light refreshments will be provided.
