Description

This volume is the first pictorial history of this remarkably preserved rural enclave in Gloucester County. Established in 1844, the municipality originally included present-day Harrison and South Harrison Townships and the western edge of Elk Township. Swedes, Finns, and Quakers began settling here in the early 18th century, establishing farms and businesses along Raccoon and Oldmans Creeks and ancient Native American trails. This collection of images, principally drawn from the archives of the Harrison Township Historical Society, reveals how geography, natural resources, and proximity to nearby Philadelphia resulted in a prosperous farming community. Rare photographs of Mullica Hill's historic district, well known for its charming shops and well-preserved streetscape, and the area's other villages and farmlands reveal a place that honors traditions amidst change and transition.
