Overview

Some of New Jersey's most exciting history can be found in our more than two dozen state parks. Names such as Wawayanda and Hopatcong remind us of the Lenape, or "Original People." Historic battlefields recall New Jersey's perilous years as "the Crossroads of the American Revolution." Abandoned forges still speak of our first great industry, and we can trace the beginnings of our transportation network in the paths of the Morris and the Delaware and Raritan Canals.
From the top of New Jersey's highest mountain, to our last undeveloped beaches, discover the stories of our state parks: who called them home in the past, what happened in and around them, and how and why they were saved for generations of visitors.
Illustrated throughout, with original black and white photos of New Jersey's historic landmarks and scenic wonders.
