    Hampton Gate Hotel

    I tended to think that the "Gate" referenced a dam gate but that is not based on anything other than my hunch.

    Interesting Article

    It says that project was approved with a 8-4 vote with one abstention but that a unanimous vote is required to approve the project. Also says that his vote was the deciding vote but it doesn't sound like it was. Whatever the case, this is more bad, corrupt stuff from Christie admin. He is the...

    anyone with info on old house near batsto ?

    The Christie admin stopped funding a lot of State owned housing, parks, recreational areas. They tore down bunch of buildings that were on State lands at Allaire State Park and they also stopped maintaiing the parks as well. The roads through the pines on State land....guess who got those funds?

    Heart of the Pines on Ebay for $55

    Just a heads up for anyone looking for a great price on that book. I think it typically goes for a lot more. I already have a copy so don't need it.

    Munyon Field

    A most elusive spot for sure. I can't remember where I came to think so, but I believe there was a structure there although I never knew if it was a house or other. There is definitely evidence of former residential activity there. I remember coming across a very old woman's shoe (witch type)...

    Fagan's Cave

    I'm pretty sure I know the property where the "cave" supposedly used to be. There's nothing to see though and I don't think anyone alive can point to any specific spot where it was.

    Burrs Mill

    Yes, very interesting and def breathes some life into the locale. That map places the mill east of the main road that was used at that time. It may or not be the same road as it is laid today. An inquiring mind can have some fun comparing historic data.

    Burrs Mill

    The former location of the mill is just south of Route 70. There's a newer house on the property with a cranberry bog or similar operation beyond the house. It's pretty much all private property and as adventurous as I am, you'd have to bypass a locked gate and that's where I draw the line. I...

    Hampton upper forge?

    Its funny because I could swear that some reference books I've read had used the "in ruins" reference to document that the "main" hampton forge was no longer operating at date of referenced map.
