    Is Hermann all but gone?

    A little further east from the hotel are the ruins of a glassworks and town from the late 1800s. The hotel was the old Sooy homestead which was turned into the Hermann City Hotel. The town itself was short lived, but the hotel remained for quite some time, eventually being turned into a boarding...

    Sound In The Burn Area

    Definitely sounds like a pine bark beetle. Aren't they super destructive?

    Old Church located behind the Harding Lakes area of Mays Landing, NJ

    Which side of the lakes are you talking about? Off Crocus or on the other side with all the smaller homes. There is a lot of homes on the latter but waaay back it was pretty undeveloped and I believe Reading Ave was actually part of the Seashore Lines. I am trying to picture where there could...

    An Extra Day Off

    I am thinking it may be a northern redbelly. Not 100% sure though.

    Finding an Old Book

    I am a little late to this and I apologize but I thought I might chime in. There is a used book store in AC that specializes in rare local books. He may have, or have a way of getting, what you are looking for. Sometimes he is a little expensive, but a good book is worth what you are willing...

    Steelman's Tavern (located on other side of "Grigsby's" on the Mays Landing-Summerspoint Road in Mays Landing

    Hey Al!!! It is crazy how this state is so controlling. I went to Fort Howard in Maryland and they let you climb, explore, crawl under, all the old buildings/bunkers with no restriction. It was wild. I left muddy and completely happy!

    Steelman's Tavern (located on other side of "Grigsby's" on the Mays Landing-Summerspoint Road in Mays Landing

    I know the harassment of rocks is always a problem and I wish they would just stop! All kidding aside though, the more I look at this, the more it seems it is part of the Preserve. I think I have a couple inspections in that area tomorrow and will see if the sign is still there and try to et...

    Steelman's Tavern (located on other side of "Grigsby's" on the Mays Landing-Summerspoint Road in Mays Landing

    From what I am able to see on the property records, there are two possibilities depending on whether my coordinates are correct or not. If it was in the smaller parcel of land, that was and still is privately owned. If it is in the larger parcel that is a little bit north of my coordinates, it...

    Steelman's Tavern (located on other side of "Grigsby's" on the Mays Landing-Summerspoint Road in Mays Landing

    Hey Boyd! Long time! So here is a screenshot I have of the area where the sign was.... I am pretty sure I even have the coordinates somewhere. The address is right around 5033 SP/ML Rd. I will check for the coordinates and get back to you. What you have is the correct area, but it may have...

    Steelman's Tavern (located on other side of "Grigsby's" on the Mays Landing-Summerspoint Road in Mays Landing

    It is across from where Gravelly Run Rd comes out onto ML/SP Rd and up towards Babcock Rd. If you are heading to Babcock Rd it will be on your right, you can kind of see a clearing. There used to be one of those green historical signs off the road a bit but I am not sure if it is still there...

    Such a pretty day.

    I am sorry you had to experience this Sue. It is hard to come up with an explanation as an adult let alone to try to explain it to a child. If seeing footage and getting answers is what you need to process and move on then that is what you need to do. Everyone processes differently and there...

    Changes at Chairville?

    It varies by state but I am pretty sure that in NJ you have to be a family member of someone buried there to have unarguable access. The property owner can deny anyone else.

    Wolfspider found the W.P. 1700 stone!

    I am pretty pissed myself. I have never hoped more that I was wrong. As soon as Guy confirmed my suspicions I emailed Cynthia at Bass River to ask if they, by some chance. moved it themselves. That is the best case scenario. If, when she gets back to me, she says that she did not know it...

    Wolfspider found the W.P. 1700 stone!

    Just wanted to get/give a quick update. At least once a year I head to this area and hike to the stone, just to see how the area is changing over the years. I never use a GPS because it is embedded into my memory. Today I took the hike. The woods have changed a lot since my last hike maybe a...

    Boy's Orphanage/Naegeli Rd.

    There are no buildings left there and the land is privately owned by a prominent Egg Harbor City family. It is regularly patrolled by the police and trespassers have been prosecuted more than once.

    Ken Washington

    My heart hurts real bad.....He will be sorely missed. I met him because of geocaching and this site but our friendship grew past that. I went on his FB page this morning to give him a heads up about some Morgans I came across and found out he passed. I will miss him.
