In 2003, Sussex County celebrates the two hundred fiftieth anniversary of its creation, which took place on June 8, 1753. At that time, all of present-day Sussex and Warren Counties were set aside from Morris County. Warren County was established by the state legislature in 1824, forming the current boundaries of Sussex County. Among the previously unpublished photographs in this history are views of the county's commercial and residential streets, mining and industrial facilities, and business establishments. The vast majority of the unique vintage images included here are drawn from Wayne T. McCabe's extraordinary collection of more than fifteen thousand photographs, glass negatives, postcards, and stereoscopic views of Sussex County.
