Spanning three decades in the first half of the twentieth century, Frank Hague's tenure as mayor saw profound and lasting changes to Jersey City's physical landscape, political culture, transportation sector, and entertainment culture. As democratic norms were challenged, innovations in health care and education profoundly impacted the lives of  thousands. 

The HAGUE exhibition is free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5. We encourage you to walk-in and view the exhibition during regular hours. If you'd like to make the suggested donation of $5 in advance, please click below.

Thank you to Peter Begans for your excellent presentation.

Over the first half of the 20th century, Frank Hague built a political machine that dominated local and state politics. His successors' stories were very different.


Peter Begans presents an in-depth review of the rise and fall of the machine that Hague built.
