If you read about the donation of a 3-ton rock from the K. Hovnanian Homes development in Woodland Park, NJ, you know that a special rock was scheduled to be delivered to the New Jersey State Museum this morning. With the incredible generosity of Betts Environmental Services, from Butler, NJ, (who I also have to point out gave up half of their Saturday), the rock is now in a prominent location between the Auditorium and West State Street.
It was quite a feat! With the skill of a surgical team, the Betts crew maneuvered the enormous truck and trailer into Trenton, backed up onto the sidewalk between parking meters right beside the rock's intended location, and simply lifted the enormous boulder off of the trailer and into position. Quite a site!
Here are some pictures and video of the event:
After 200 million years in northern New Jersey, the rock arrives in Trenton.
Maneuvering into position.
The triumphant team!
