New Egypt and Plumsted Township is a collection of unique vintage photographs, many of which have never before been published. Beginning with Quaker Clement Plumstead of London, who was granted twenty-seven hundred acres in 1699, this history shows the progression of the township to the mid-1900s. At the end of the nineteenth century, railroad transportation brought visitors to New Egypt, which blossomed with hotels, guesthouses, the Isis Theatre, and carnivals on Oakford Lake. Among the images are views of Harker's Grove, a favorite spot for picnics and dancing on the pavilion; Sunday concerts held by local talent in New Egypt; and the open space that has made hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities popular pastimes for locals and visitors alike.
