Overview


Bordentown Revisited highlights the memorable growth of an area located at the kink of the Delaware River. The city of Bordentown and neighboring Fieldsboro share a stretch of riverfront, and that waterfront location brought them great prosperity during the industrial years. The rural township traded its agricultural occupation for housing development. Then, as old paths and byways became streets and highways, businesses, motels, and restaurants emerged along the roadside.
