Overview
Like so many other towns in central New Jersey, Warren Township has changed dramatically over the last forty years. Gone are the billowing fields of corn and hay, the sheep and cows lazing in the sun, the dairies and the barns. It is difficult to imagine the Warren of yesteryear, when a few thousand hardy farmers followed the immutable seasons of planting and harvest, and life revolved around the township's many villages—Mount Horeb, Coontown, Mount Bethel, Union Village, South Stirling, Smalleytown, Warrenville, and Springdale. This delightful collection of over two hundred photographs culled from family albums and the extensive archives of the Warren Township Historical Society shows a township that is fast disappearing. Caught on imperishable film are wonderful images of one-room schoolhouses, simple country homes, plain churches, and streetscapes of unpaved roads, country inns, and towering trees.
