The story of Batsto, an early iron town and glassworks at the heart of southern New Jersey's Pine Barrens, is unique in American history. From its modest beginnings as a sawmill in the 1760s, Batsto grew into a thriving industrial community through the Revolutionary War years and beyond, its fortunes rising and falling for two centuries as a succession of owners and speculators brought their visions and schemes to bear.

What People are Saying About This

Bud Wilson

Barbara Solem is a persistent researcher with a knack for bringing history alive. It's surprising that it's taken this long for someone to finally pen the story of Batsto Village, but in this author's capable hands, I can honestly say it was worth the wait. --Budd Wilson, historical archaeologist
