The D&R Greenway Land Trust worked with the Stoutsburg Sourland African American Museum and the Sourland Conservancy to acquire land for their new headquarters and museum. This Land for Life Video tells how the preservation of land adjacent to a historic African American church will help tell the people and places left out of most history books. African Americans played a key role in and around the Sourland Mountains region in Central New Jersey. Meet their descendants and storytellers.

Please check out this short but amazing video, produced by the D&R Greenway Land Trust, about the land preservation projects now happening at the Mt. Zion AME  Church!

The Stoutsburg Sourland African American Museum tells the story of the unique culture, experiences, and contributions of the African American community of the Sourland Mountain Region of central New Jersey.
