Three hundred years ago in 1715, John Budd, a Philadelphia merchant, bought 1,200 acres near the Passaic River and established his farm. Long before John Budd arrived, however, the Lenni-Lenape Tribe crossed the Passaic River, very close to the location of our current bridge, on their annual trek along the Minisink Trail to their summer campgrounds by the ocean.
With AP exams out of the way, eight Chatham High School senior art students are creating two unique photo opportunities for the Chatham Historical Society. These displays will be located at Railroad Plaza South during the Tricentennial celebration of Chatham held June 13, 2015 in conjunction with the annual Fishawack Festival.
