Historic Arnold Book Signing

In 2005, the writers of the Historic Arnold book gathered at the rec center to sign copies of their book.  It was developed in 1976 in honor of the country’s bicentennial.  Approximately 200 copies were printed.  In 2005, AHS received permission to reprint the book, and made a large batch of books.  AHS continues to sell copies of these books every month for a $20 donation.

    I want to know who was “Jersey” -The bizarre attendant of Arnold Park. His real name, where was he from originally?, etc. I lived in Arnold from 72-80 and he was there all that time. I understand he died from/in a hold up at his residence years later after he was moved out of Arnold Park.
