Along the Tom's River, New Jersey (Images of America Series) by Ocean County Historical Society

This fascinating visual history features more than two hundred carefully selected photographs that together document the people, places, and events that have defined the city of Toms River and the surrounding area. Located on the banks of the river of the same name, Toms River was first settled in the early 1700s by loggers drawn to the dense forests on the river’s banks. During the American Revolution, the village was a constant thorn in the side of the British, and it was attacked and burned to the ground in 1783. The arrival of the railroads in the late 1800s ushered in a new age of expansion which, spurred on by the construction of the Garden State Parkway in the decade after World War II, continues to this day.
