    Hampton Gate Hotel

    Were you wondering if Mary Shinn is possibly also Mary Cavileer? If so, I would say doubtful. Restore and Mary sold the property in 1795 and according to this Shinn family tree, she died in 1804. The reference above is from 1824 and the furnace was only established after they sold. I'm not...

    Hampton Gate Hotel

    When I saw this book reference, I added to my list to find. :-) You mentioned it was in the public domain, but I don't see it available online anywhere?

    Hampton Gate Hotel

    Well, yes, “publish” as in offer to see if Ben wants to host it here. :) I only get to work on it in my limited spare time so to might take a bit. According to Family Empire in Jersey Iron 1964, Pierce said the "gate" in Hampton Gate refers to a physical gate that existed at the end of the...

    Hampton Gate Hotel

    Coincidentally I was also researching Hampton and Hampton Gate today and came here to post and saw this! If this is it, what an incredible find! I have been writing my own version of the history of Hampton, based on various sources and I have been also working on a map of the various known...

    Is the Wilkinson Hunting Club the "Vineland" Hunting Club from Beck's Forgotten Towns?

    I was researching Hampton and Hampton Gate and in Forgotten Towns of Southern NJ, Beck describes coming into Hampton Gate and he talks to someone in a "tiny unpainted house in front of a more modern building, the Vineland Hunting Club". There doesn't seems to be any trace online of a "Vineland...

    What happened to Mannis Duck Pond?

    I did not know this! I think I had asked who Mannis was way back when and no one had an answer for me. I must have driven past this sign a million times and never realized the answer was right under my nose: https://www.hmdb.org/m.asp?m=79511 Thanks Guy! Just curious, how did you learn this...

    What happened to Mannis Duck Pond?

    Took a hike there today and it is very low. It doesn’t look like the water has bypassed the dam, in fact, I don’t see any water flowing downstream anywhere. Maybe beavers blocking it upstream? I seem to remember seeing a post on this somewhere, but couldn’t seem to find it. Any ideas? Dam...

    DEP ANNOUNCES VIRTUAL PUBLIC MEETING TO LAUNCH WHARTON STATE FOREST VISITOR AND VEHICLE USE SURVEY

    Yes, this true. So far, Shamong, Waterford and Mullica passed resolutions against the State’s plans.

    Illegal off-road vehicles continue to tear up N.J. forests. Advocates push for crackdown.

    Can you PM me the location of the pond? I'd like to grab an "after" picture before too many more leaves fall. Might be helpful to show these projects work.

    A few shots from this morning

    Ok, got it. I re-exported them all and that seemed to work. Thanks!

    Not sure why two of them show up as "attachments" instead of being embedded in the post....

    Where is this?

    I never knew it as a dog park but yes, across from Batona camp where the Christmas tree used to be and where the astronomy club goes occasionally.

    Where is this?

    Aww, I was going to say Deep Run, but it seemed too big.

    DEP ANNOUNCES VIRTUAL PUBLIC MEETING TO LAUNCH WHARTON STATE FOREST VISITOR AND VEHICLE USE SURVEY

    Hi Tommy, given the relative quiet in recent years, our credit card processor went dormant, but we reactivated it recently. Also, our emails are working, maybe it was a temporary outage? We launched our own forum many years ago, but frankly, most of the “forum” related discussion occurs right...

    DEP ANNOUNCES VIRTUAL PUBLIC MEETING TO LAUNCH WHARTON STATE FOREST VISITOR AND VEHICLE USE SURVEY

    When we met with the state earlier in the year, they told us then that it wasn’t about the money. It was so they could take them away. It wouldn’t surprise me though if they start out free and then charge a small fee and gradually start jacking it up from there. By then, no politician would be...
