Share THE HISTORY OF HAMPTON BOROUGH

Event Details

Hampton Borough was part of a land grant dating back to the early 18th century that included about 16,000 acres.  But way before it was settled, it was part of the Pre-Lenape Kingdom.  Because Hampton was point where the Central Railroad of New Jersey and the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad crossed, it's original name was "Junction".  This talk by Hampton Historian Tom Carpenter includes a powerpoint of interesting, historic photographs and will explore the early native settlers, settlement patterns and development, the importance of rail to the creation of Hampton, and the history of one of the county's oldest fire departments in our county, dating back to 1899.  
Free.  Refreshments follow.
