New Jersey is hardly “new” anymore but we think the state doesn’t look a day over 100!
On December 18th, 1787, New Jersey became the third state in the union to ratify the United States Constitution and thus gaining statehood on the same day. You can check out lots of the documents that made it all happen by going to the NJ State Department website.
The following people were in attendance. If you pay attention to street names and historical places all over New Jersey, you’ll notice quite a few of these 1787 names!
