    Forgotten Towns of Southern New Jersey Index

    I recently finished reading Beck's Forgotten Towns of Southern NJ. Always "spot read" this book, but never read it cover to cover, so I decided to do this. Needless to say, this is an amazing book, but one thing that always bothered me about it was it's lack of an index. There are times you...

    Caution!

    Beware of the water holes on Tremont Ave. in Waterford. They are deeper than they appear. :bang: This was Tuesday afternoon around 4:30. Luckily, just as I started hiking out, the other driver was on his way back in, with a friend who got us both out. The ruts were pretty deep, and my pumpkins...

    Aetna furnace

    While recently exploring the Ætna Furnace site in Atlantic County, I found a rather large (10"x8") piece of slag. You can see the the traces of iron along with the impurities (slag).

    Graphite Rods

    While exploring Parkdale recently, the kids a I discovered these black rods at various places around the ruins. It's difficult to determine their age as I don't know how they would stand up against weather and time. After a little research, I found that they are highly conducive to electricity...

    Hayes Mill

    I'm a "newbie" to the forum so I hope I'm doing this right. This is the best Pine Barrens sight I've come across. I'm from Atco/Winslow Twp area and live near Hayes Mill Rd. I can't seem to find any info/history of the Hayes Mill. Does any one know about it?
