  • RAVEN ROCK Delaware Township. This settlement on SR 29 near the boundary of Kingwood Township and opposite Bull's Island, was part of a 300 acre tract which John Ladd owned in 1721. It was known as Saxtonville (when this was part of Amwell Township) being named for Nathaniel Saxton who purchased land here about 1812. Known also as Saxtons Vill in 1817, the longer version was in popular use at least until 1908.

  • RESEARCHERS please be informed that The Hunterdon County Historical Society has sponsored the computerization of the oldest newspaper published in this county - The Hunterdon Gazette - which was published from 1825 to 1866. It is full of names and more names and stuff about our ancestors that you wouldn't believe unless you were able to read the originals. And now you may do so!

    Please go to: and view the Index. This contains the names of over 10,000 people who did something to get their name published in this newspaper. The Index covers the Years 1825 to 1844 which is the period computerized to date. We expect the years 1845 and 1846 to be added to the Index sometime during February. The project is still active but the process takes time so watch this Web site frequently.

    Don't forget to view all the other Good Stuff displayed on the NJHunter Home Page.

  • Sourland Mountains
    "New Jersey's Sourland Mountain" by T. J. Luce.

    In the book the mountain is described as "in west-central NJ roughly 17 miles long and 4 miles wide, running northwest from the Delaware River to a point just beyond the village of Neshanic. It is 50 miles equidistant from Philadelphia and New York and parallels a section of the metropolitan corridor stretching from Boston to Washington DC and yet despite suburban sprawl creeping along its flanks, which in recent years has threatened to turn into a gallop, it still retains much of its unspoiled character."
