Overview


The largest town in Warren County, Phillipsburg is located in the southwestern tip of the county along the Delaware River. Although the origin of its name is uncertain-named after a Native American chief or an early landowner-the area was known as Phillipsburg as early as 1749 and was officially incorporated in 1861. Situated relatively close to New York and Philadelphia, Phillipsburg developed as a manufacturing hub. Companies such as J.R. Templin's Iron and Brass Foundry, Cooper Iron Works, and Reese & Company helped Phillipsburg to grow. The prosperity alive in the town during these times is evident on the faces of those pictured in Phillipsburg. In these rare photographs, our earlier neighbors are on the field playing for the company team, on leisurely drives, or hard at work building the old trolley line. Even when times were harder, such as during flooding of the Delaware River, history was recorded with images and is retold in this volume.

    If you ever ate a Jimmy's hot dog...

    If you know what a Stateliner is, if you ever had a Jimmy's hot dog, or if you have ever known and loved a P'burger, then this is the book for you. Following an introduction to the history of this small, industrial New Jersey city on the Delaware River, Dr. Buscemi organizes hundreds of photographs into chapters such as: 'School Days', 'Sports', 'Transportation' and 'Disasters'; Phillipsburg is notable for all of these. Most chapters begin with a brief historical essay. Photo captions are complete and readable, making this more than a photo album. Photo reproduction is excellent, as it has been in the other 'Images of America Series' titles from Arcadia, such as 'Easton'. An affectionate and very affordable look at 'the last exit in New Jersey'.
