The Atsion property went to auction on April 7, 1859. According to theWest Jerseyman, this “was the largest public sale of Real Estate which has probably ever been made in this section of New Jersey.”
As I have mentioned, to get to this point the property was surveyed and this stone was placed a short distance from Carranza Road by the Commissioners of West Jersey on 10/23/1856 to mark the boundary so it could be sold.
