‘Sweet’ exhibit on display at Hoboken Historical Museum

HOBOKEN – Hudson Street just got a little bit sweeter.
The Hoboken Historical Museum, located at 1301 Hudson St., kicks off their newest exhibit this week, “A Sweet History of Hoboken.”
On Sunday, Feb. 6 at 4 p.m., the Historical Museum will present a “History of Chocolate” talk and tasting event by chocolate historian and Hoboken resident Maricel Presilla. The event is open to the public and the museum is requesting a $5 donation.
“It’s such a rich (and tasty) history. The Museum has traced a history of the city from its earliest days through its many commercial bakers, candy manufacturers and family-owned bakeries, including a smorgasbord of different immigrant groups’ food customs,” according to the museum’s website.
Pictured is a cake made by Mary Grace of Giorgio’s Bakery, which was featured at the Jan. 30 opening of the exhibit.
The exhibit is expected to run until at least the beginning of the summer.
