North Jersey Beer: (American Palate) -Christopher Morris - North Jersey residents have enjoyed frothy pints since the first brewhouse opened in Hoboken in 1641. Brewing was big in the Garden State prior to Prohibition, and by 1900, more than fifty breweries were in operation. Nearly half of themlike Kruegerwere located in Newark. The dry reign of Prohibition and the regions proximity to major cities made it a hub for bootleggers and gangsters like Longy Zwillman and Waxey Gordon. Even after the Eighteenth Amendment was repealed, North Jersey brewing sputtered. Some independent breweries like Ballantine restarted operation, but it wasnt until the 1990s that the region saw a craft brewing renaissance. Today, Jerseyans enjoy premium ales and lagers from breweries like Climax, River Horse and New Jersey Beer Company. Beer writer Chris Morris explores the origins and the new revolution of brewing in North Jersey.

Eagle Rock Reservation (Images of America: New Jersey) -Joseph Fagan - Founded in 1895, the Essex County Park Commission was the first county park system in the nation. That year, the commission began its management of Eagle Rock. The reservation was designed by renowned architect Frederick Law Olmsted Sr., who also designed Central Park in New York City and the Capitol Grounds in Washington, D.C. Evident characteristics of the architect within the park are the winding roads, natural blended waterways, open fields, and overlooks, all of which combine to attract thousands of visitors each year. Eagle Rock Reservation explores many interesting and little-known facts about the park. Readers are introduced to Llewellyn Haskell, the founder of nearby Llewellyn Park, who first purchased land at Eagle Rock. Seen is the trolley that once served Eagle Rock as it emerged as a popular resort area. Included are the park's view of the New York City skyline and the Hundred Steps to Eagle Rock, the same steps that were ascended by visitors nearly one hundred years ago. Also seen is a never-before-published lab note written by Thomas Edison, documenting World War I experiments he conducted for the U.S. Navy at Eagle Rock.

Readington Township (Images of America: New Jersey) -Readington Township Historic Preservation Commission - - Used Book in Good Condition Readington Township was created by royal charter on July 15, 1730, as Readings or Readings Town. The township consists of 48 square miles and is the largest in Hunterdon County. The early settlement patterns of the Dutch, English, and Germans, who came to farm the rich soil of the Raritan Valley during the 18th century, established the foundation of the villages and hamlets of the township. During the 19th century, the development of railroad lines in the region created additional villages and helped to bring the township’s produce to larger markets. By the latter part of the 20th century, most of Readington’s inhabitants were employed in diverse industries throughout central New Jersey, and the automobile made travel beyond the villages routine. Like the generations of residents before them, today’s residents remain closely connected to their village communities, and a significant portion of the township’s land continues to be devoted to agriculture.

Farming Pleasant Valley: 250 Years of Life in Rural Hopewell Township, New Jersey -Larry Kidder - Pleasant Valley lies in the northwestern corner of Hopewell Township, Mercer County, New Jersey and has been fortunate in not being subject to the type of suburban development that has obscured so much of the farmland and rural communities in the Mid-Atlantic States. A visitor to the Pleasant Valley area can still “read” elements in the landscape and buildings that tell the knowledgeable observer some of the history of the Valley as an agricultural region. For over 250 years farming was the primary activity in the Valley and a sense of community identity developed focused first on the local grist mill and later on the local rural school house. This book tells the story of how life changed over those 250 years both in general and for specific farmers and their families. Drawing on a number of original sources provided by local families, the Howell Living History Farm located in the Valley, and local historical societies, this is a unique story that provides a case study that helps us understand life in rural communities from the late 17th to the 20th century. The Pleasant Valley Historic District was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1991 and this is the story of its history. In this story we meet farmers, blacksmiths, grist mill owners, Revolutionary War militiamen, slave owners, tenant farmers, and baseball players among a host of characters and learn how the land formations, roads, Delaware River, creeks, canal, railroad, and nearby villages contributed to and helped shape their lives.

East Hanover (Images of America: New Jersey) -Steve Swanbeck - Adventurous farmers settled between the Passaic and Whippany Rivers more than three hundred years ago. They led hard but simple agrarian lives, interrupted only by the American Revolution. Life continued in this manner until the twentieth century, when residents voted to incorporate East Hanover into an independent political unit. After that vote in 1928, East Hanover slowly transformed from a farming community to a bustling suburb. East Hanover explores the history of this town, using many rare photographs and documents. Unique accounts-the wedding in the local church that impacted the entire world, the patriots who guarded a bridge against British attack, and others-help relate the story. Such a collection of tales and images, including the first library, the devastating Norda fire, and the faces of long-ago schoolchildren, has never before been assembled in one volume.
