Garden State Parkway (Images of
The Garden State Parkway has transformed the lives of New Jersey residents since opening in 1954. Spanning 173 miles from Cape May to the New York State line, it has fostered tourism to the Jersey Shore and given commuters an easier way to get to work. Gov. Alfred E. Driscoll had envisioned the impact a new highway could have on the state, and a large team of planners, engineers, and contractors made it happen. In 1952, the legislature created the New Jersey Highway Authority to ensure the funding and completion of the $330-million parkway and to self-sufficiently operate the roadway through toll revenue. Garden State Parkway shows how this iconic roadway gained its place in history and continues to combine safe transportation in a parklike setting with the scenic beauty of New Jersey.

Along the Toms River (Images of
This fascinating visual history features more than two hundred carefully selected photographs that together document the people, places, and events that have defined the city of Toms River and the surrounding area. Located on the banks of the river of the same name, Toms River was first settled in the early 1700s by loggers drawn to the dense forests on the river’s banks. During the American Revolution, the village was a constant thorn in the side of the British, and it was attacked and burned to the ground in 1783. The arrival of the railroads in the late 1800s ushered in a new age of expansion which, spurred on by the construction of the Garden State Parkway in the decade after World War II, continues to this day.

Brick Township (Images of America: New
In 1850, when the New Jersey Legislature created Ocean County, they also created Brick Township among a region of virgin woodlands. The new township was named after its most prominent resident, Joseph W. Brick, the industrious and successful owner of Bergen Iron Works. As his and other local industries expanded, more and more people began to call Bricktheir home. Brick Township records these founders and the events and places that helped them shape our community. By 1920, parts of the new township had declared their independence, and the remaining parts of Brick began to evolve into a resort community. The summer tourists, farmers, home builders and shipbuilders, anglers, hunters, tavern and innkeepers, merchants, and others helped fashion Brick into an intimate but prosperous community. Brick continued to be a quiet, rural, resort area into the 1950s, when the Garden State Parkway opened, and residential and commercial development created dramatic growth in year-round residents, and it became a thriving suburban community. Brick Township captures scenes of life in Brick from 1850 to the 1950s and beyond; from the early European settlers to the suburbanites who now call Brick theirhome; from the thriving poultry industry to area resorts; from Joseph Brick to our friends and famil...

Hunt's Pier (Images of
With the completion of the Garden State Parkway and a prospering society’s increased mobility in the years following World War II, the Wildwoods transitioned from a remote barrier island along the southern New Jersey coast to a vacation mecca. Featuring free bathing beaches, state-of-the-art motels, endless nightlife, and a honky-tonk boardwalk lined with entertainment options of all kinds, the resort would thrive for the better part of the next half-century. During that golden era, Hunt’s Pier became the “talk of the walk”: a fun-lover’s paradise of themed custom attractions that evoked the adventurous thrills of Disneyland. The “Oceanic Wonderland” helped millions of vacationers create countless memories, whether it was a child challenging the Flyer roller coaster’s intimidating plunge or a child-at-heart exploring the dark caverns of the Golden Nugget and the haunted decks of the pirate ship Skua. Hunt’s Pier captures the magic of the famed seaside amusement park through historical photographs, many published here for the first time.

Neptune and Shark River Hills (Images of
Neptune and Shark River Hills are neighboring New Jersey towns that grew from two different but distinctly American traditions. Neptune is the child of traditional agrarian roots, developing from a patchwork of early 1800s farmsteads into an urbanized shore hub intersected by major highways. Shark River Hills lay undeveloped until the 1920s, and it was American entrepreneurism that sparked its development as a planned community. “The Hills” was a buyers’ package pitched to the dream of owning a summer place at the Jersey shore. Images from 1800 to 1980 document the evolution of these coastal towns from shore wilderness to modern communities, just a toll’s throw from New Jersey’s Garden State Parkway. Farmsteads and country values characterized early Neptune. Captured here are images of the area’s schoolhouses, fire companies, merchants, and townspeople. Resurrected are fondly remembered landmarks like Storyland Village and the Neptune Music Circus. Celebrated are Neptune natives such as actor Jack Nicholson, explorer Ike Schlossbach, football star Bob Davis, and rock ’n roller Southside Johnny. Scenes of Shark River Hills from the early 1900s offer a window into a simpler time in an idyllic place, when locals worked and played on“Shack River.” Images of summer s...

Clark (NJ) (Images of
Clark explores a community with a history dating from 1864, the height of the Civil War. Accessed by Exit 135 on the Garden State Parkway, Clark was originally the Fifth Ward of Rahway until a group of disgruntled farmers, led by founding fathers Robert A. Russell, William Bloodgood, William H. Enders, Smith Woodruff, and Judge Hugh H. Bowne, declared its independence and established a self-governing township. The men named the town for a local American patriot and signer of the Declaration of Independence, Abraham Clark. The vintage photographs included here represent Clark's history from its days as a rural farm town of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to its current status as a thriving suburban community.

Fords (NJ) (Images of
Fords is part of the state's oldest original township, Woodbridge, chartered in 1669. The area was once a prime area clay-mining region, and the bricks made from that clay helped put the township on the map. Originally known as Sling Taile, Fords borders Hopelawn, Keasby, Iselin, Menlo Park Terrace, and Edison. Settled early by immigrants from Ireland, Italy, and other European countries, Fords was an agricultural community until the twentieth century, when local industry flourished. Fords exhibits vintage photographs of the very early Cutler House, old shops in the business district, local churches, Dalina's Tavern, and the Fairfield Union School. The book also includes images of the trolleys, which were later replaced by the motorcar, and of the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike, both of which pass through town. Drawn from the collections of longtime residents, local libraries, schools, organizations, and churches, these photographs, along with the well-researched text, bring the past to life.

Clark Revisited (Images of
Clark Revisited takes a second look at the past of a community whose humble beginnings can be traced back to the height of the Civil War. Located in Central New Jersey, the township of Clark began as a quiet agricultural community. But with the 20th century came many changes, and the development of the Garden State Parkway became a catalyst for Clark's transition into a community with housing developments, businesses, and a renewed image. These changes can be largely attributed to land developers, as well as the leadership of mayors who have served Clark over the last half of the century. New Jersey Monthly magazine has credited Clark as one of the best places to live in New Jersey. What was once rural farmland has grown into a thriving, suburban community that continues to develop both socially and economically.

Dennis Township (Images of
Dennis Township is more than a swampy, desolate locale tourists drive through to reach the beach at the Jersey Shore. It is actually eight unique communities, stretching from the Garden State Parkway to the east to Delaware Bay and Cumberland County to the west. Dennis is farmland and forests of oak and pine. Meadows teem with wildlife, all just minutes away from busy beaches. Dennis Township is also about people, many of whom trace their roots back to before the American Revolution. It has a population of determined individualists, mixed with just enough "new blood" to sustain a vibrant community. Geography and people invigorate the township's eight hamlets, including Dennisville, Belleplain, and South Seaville, which were formerly independent towns but are now more regarded as signposts along the traveler's way. People have lived there for generations and will be living there still long after the tourists have moved on. This books tells more than one story, but all of the stories equally make Dennis Township the special place it long has been.
