Franklin Township (New Jersey)
by William Brahms and the
1997, Arcadia Publishing
From the back cover:
Although some of the regional names have fallen out of use, all of the township's villages come alive in this rich collection of images primarily from the first half of the twentieth century. Famous sites such as Washington's Headquarters, the Marconi Wireless Station, and the Delaware and Raritan Canal are depicted alongside images of daily life on the area's farms and main streets. Local legends such as the Middlebush Giant, John Honeyman, and the Van Wickle Ghost are spotlighted, and engaging historical captions communicate their significance.
Author William Brahms has drawn on the collections of photographs owned by the Franklin Township Public Library, Rutgers University, and numerous local residents to compile this significant tribute to the township's history. Brahms and his institutional sponsor, the Township Library, are pleased to present the first new book on Franklin history to be published in over thirty years. It will certainly prove a valuable addition to the collections of all residents, both present and former.
