Overview
The Township of Berkeley Heights—a rural community until well into the twentieth century—has matured into a diverse and dynamic town. Images of America: Berkeley Heights chronicles the fascinating history of the township from the 1880s to the early 1960s in a remarkable series of vintage images and lively commentary. Author Virginia B. Troeger invites you to stroll past the homesteads and businesses of yesteryear along Springfield Avenue, visit some of the people who have called Berkeley Heights home, and stop by such landmarks as the Bonnie Burn Sanatorium (later Runnells Hospital), the world-renown Bell Telephone Laboratories in Murray Hill (now part of Lucent Technologies), the Deserted Village, Old Saint Mary's Stone Hill, and the unique community of Free Acres.
