Overview


Halfway between the bustling streets of Philadelphia and the serenity of the New Jersey Shore lies Browns Mills, New Jersey. Nestled within its rich pine trees and dark lakes is the legacy of those who sought nature's healing properties, social status, and a summer refuge for more than two generations.

Their stories and faces make up the exciting collection in Browns Mills. Tales of those who came seeking natural spring waters to avoid le grippe became the foundation for the grand hotels that existed in the early nineteenth century. The annals of others in search of a lakefront lot as their own private hideaway create the framework for a modern town that remains dotted with quaint summer cottages.

Their stories, at last, are combined in Browns Mills to form a chronicle of life in this Pinelands community from 1820 through the 1970s.
