CHATHAM at the Crossing of the Fishawack $15

by John T. Cunningham

This is the story of a New Jersey town, founded at the place where Lenni Lenape Indians crossed the Passaic river. Indian trail gave way to muddy road, to turnpike, to Main Street with its traffic and rows of refurbished stores. The book shows the simplicity of the 19th century developing into the complexity of the 20th - as it affected Main Street. More than 400 men and women helped compile the data, manuscripts and photographs for this book, as well as conducting research and fact checking.
