    Fries Mill

    Interesting I heard the state wanted to buy the rest of the conservancy land maybe it’s part of the deal. I saw new yellow test pipes in this area https://boydsmaps.com/#17.51/39.344262/-74.970726/pines2020a/0.00/0.00 and the blue Mopar car that was there is gone

    You’re really making me want to take a venture out there. I’ve been wanting to get a duplicate photo of the one I posted a while back and curious to see if the trees in the photo are still there

    Post Your Old Car Finds Here

    Here is a mopar I came across at the very edge of one of the lakes in former NJ Silica Sand Co property (now nature conservancy). It has since been removed in the last few months. Pretty sure it is a Plymouth Valiant I would guess early 70s

    A cool story about a cool car

    I know Al or someone will chime in with some more detailed history, but check out the LiDAR here https://boydsmaps.com/#16.82/39.424752/-74.913100/midatlidar/0.00/0.00 The last thing Bennett’s mill was used for was a cranberry bog which you can see by the hash marks shown here on the LIDAR and...

    I wish I could share the article about the passing of the mayflower descendant Louise Banks in 1931. It mentions her and her husband Wilson Banks owning 7000 acres in port Elizabeth and Manumuskin. It also mentions she worked as a telegraph operator in Manumuskin station which is where they...
