Hunterdon County: the First 275 Years", this new paperback has chapters from agriculture, to transportation; government to parks.  It an important part of your Tricentennial memorabilia as well as Hunterdon book collection!

"The heartland of the original far-flung Hunterdon County of 1714 still retains the name...and the descendants of many of the original settlers are still to be found here. The long history of Hunterdon has been one of unity, comparatively speaking and of slow and orderly development. much of the area's past is still mirrored on its present. That this will not long be true seems obvious... Let us hasten, therefore, to put to paper as much of the past as we can, while at the same time fighting a valiant fight to preserve historical documents, the best of our old buildings, and part of the countryside as parks. We do these things less for ourselves than for those who follow us, for they will have only as much of the past as we preserve for the." -- Hubert G. Schmidt, 1964.
