Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis: Preservation and Grace, and American Legacy

July 25, 2019 at 1:00 PM | Montville, NJ | Montville Township Public Library
She was a Kennedy. She was an Onassis. She did not define herself by her husbands. Realizing that future generations would need the insights of the past for guidance, her preservation efforts galvanized the rest of the country to protect its historic monuments. Aided by her public profile, her work helped bring about the Historic Preservation Act of 1966: the most far-reaching preservation legislation ever enacted in the United States.
