Yes, right off of Evesham Road
That oxbow and large tree both are within the bounds of "the old sawmill lands," originally a 712-acre tract dating to 1688. William Farr researched and wrote about the mill and its associated property. You can read Bill's text here:

http://www.westjerseyhistory.org/books/farrwatermills/W.shtml

The article to read is the second one in his "W" chapter, labeled as "Walker's Sawmill (Old sawmill)." History surrounds us and can be found under every step we take, but it is sometimes difficult to imagine the physical landscape of past centuries.

Best regards,
Jerseyman
