    Are Artesian Wells Safe for Drinking?

    Is the water found in artesian wells in the Pine Barrens safe to drink? Has anyone ever tested their water quality? I remember seeing people filling bottles at the well in the Atlantic Co. Park in Estell Manor, they swore by it.

    Batsto and their outhouses

    I have been visiting Batsto for over 40 years (I was a very young child, mind you) and I was always amazed at the large outhouse that was supposedly used by the mansion workers. It had about 5 regular seats and 2 lower seats (for kids). This outhouse was located right alongside the side of the...
