Shrewsbury, one of New Jersey’s oldest settlements, has been a separate borough only since 1926. Since then, a modern town has developed around a core of historic and exclusive estates. This second volume of Shrewsbury’s past takes readers on an engaging historical journey while tracing the community’s development. The emerging businesses that helped turn a quiet Broad Street into a modern highway stretch are linked to that stem’s rural past. The construction of buildings during the 1970s such as the Red Cross Building and the Shrewsbury State Bank helped transform Shrewsbury into a mixture of commercial and residential properties. Personalities that gave character to the town are presented from the recent and distant past.
