A program on the Hall-Mills murder will be presented on Sunday, November 18, 2018 staring at 2:00 p.m. at the headquarters of the East Brunswick Historical Society located on 78 Milltown Road in East Brunswick. The Hall-Mills murder of 1922 was a "Crime of the Century" in Central New Jersey and involved a New Brunswick minister and a choir member. This has been an unsolved murder, but there is new evidence that may shed light on this case.
Free parking is available. There will be free refreshments. Donations are appreciated.
