Description - Remembering Somerville, New Jersey by Jessie Lynes Havens
With meticulous research and an obvious love of her subject, Jessie has written about such diverse subjects as mayors, mosquitoes, mail, marbles and Main Street.-Somerville History Advisory Committee In 1909, Somerville, New Jersey, celebrated its new status as a borough independent from Bridgewater with music and fireworks. Centuries before, however, Somerville was home to individuals whose foresight and dedication transformed it from a sleepy backwater to a thriving county seat, industrial center and commuter suburb. From dogwoods to doughboys, county fairs to the coming of the railroad, this collection of Jessie Havens's "Hindsight" columns is a patchwork quilt of historical vignettes that provides detailed insight into the local color that gives life to a town.
