Overview


In 1996, residents of Rumson greeted the publication

of a photographic history on their town with tremendous enthusiasm. For the first time, a visual

record of the community's history was widely accessible, and many present and former residents

embraced this presentation. In this second volume of historic Rumson images, author Randall Gabrielan reaches for both depth and breadth in his portrayal of this multi-faceted town. Rumson Road, which maintains its century-long stature as one of the best-known country drives in America, is portrayed vividly in all its gilded elegance. Two of Rumson's great estates--Borden's and Rohallion--are closely examined in separate chapters. In addition, however, Gabrielan presents the other faces of Rumson, from the historic port of Black Point to aspects of everyday village life, in thoughtful detail.
