Northfield is a vibrant South Jersey community with farm, seaport, and shipbuilding beginnings. First settled in the late 1700s, it is a place of beautiful homes built by ship captains during the 1700s and 1800s. Northfield portrays the history of the community with stunning photographs and a wealth of fascinating detail. At one time, Northfield grew food for Atlantic City hotels; its office for marriage license applications was in the insane asylum; and its glass factory sold laboratory glassware to Jonas Salk, discoverer of the polio vaccine.

The Northfield Historical Society and Northfield Cultural Committee selected some two hundred views of people, places, and events to document various aspects of the city, some still existing, some recently gone, and some long gone. Dating from the late 1800s to the late 1900s, the photographs are from the archives of the Northfield Museum and Casto House and from private family collections.
