Dug by hardworking men in the late 1820s, the Morris Canal is considered to be an engineering marvel. Comprised of 34 locks and 23 inclined planes, it created a waterway from the Delaware River in Phillipsburg, across northern New Jersey, and down into the Hudson River in Jersey City. It was drained in 1924, with its prisms mostly filled in. The 1960s brought a steadfast movement for the preservation of the largely buried Morris Canal, including the historic Silas Riggs Saltbox House being rescued from demolition and later the opening of the restored Waterloo Village. These challenging years set in motion the formation of organizations and societies dedicated to protecting, restoring, and preserving the Morris Canal. Through the persistent efforts and dedication of historians, canal enthusiasts, and neighboring communities, the Morris Canal and its buried history are gradually being unearthed. This book captures the Morris Canal's original pathway and its restoration and preservation accomplishments.

Situated on the Hudson River, the Central Railroad of New Jersey terminal operated its railroad/maritime complex for over 100 years in this area. After its shutdown in 1967, community advocates, already lobbying for nine years, continued their successful campaign for the site to become a public park. With over 1,000 acres, Liberty State Park opened on Flag Day--June 14, 1976. Today, this recreational landscape features the Nature Interpretive Center, Liberty Science Center, and a section of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. Liberty State Park, in Jersey City, is the only place in New Jersey where one can board a ferry to visit Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Liberty State Park showcases the rich cultural and environmental history of this landscape's transformation from an abandoned waterfront transportation hub into one of America's most exceptional state parks.

Driving along the Millstone Valley Scenic Byway is a trip back into the history of central New Jersey. The villages of East Millstone, Millstone, Griggstown, Rocky Hill and Kingston offer the visitor a glimpse into the life of the valley as it was and still is. This natural north-south corridor in central New Jersey offers a glimpse into the past where rich layers of history from the earliest Dutch settlement through skirmishes of the Revolutionary War to the canal era live on. The valley s streets and roads of today follow the trails once used by the Lenape Indians who peacefully ceded their claims to the land as the Dutch and English settlers arrived. The new settlers were eager to clear this fertile land for their farms and villages. These roads also follow the same routes used by General George Washington as he led his weary, freezing soldiers to Morristown after the crossing of the Delaware and the victory at the Battle of Princeton during the American Revolution. The Millstone Valley Scenic Byway, which is a central feature of the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area, makes history come alive through a charming glimpse of the rural past surviving in the heart of America s most densely populated state."
