The 1987 Fall Tour of The Society For Industrial Archeology: The booklet provides an overview of the various industries which formed the culture of South Jersey. The first area covered of the southern part of New Jersey is the coastal area; fishing, oystering, and boat building. This includes the Atlantic shore and the Delaware Bay, which contain vast reaches of tidal marshes. The second area of investigation is that part of the outer coastal plain known as the Pine Barrens. A tract of at least 650,00 acres which supplied the mill seats and raw materials for iron, paper, glass, blueberries, and cranberries. In addition, the people who followed the bay, who worked the iron plantations; and who in later years became known as “Pineys” are included. Learn about at least three generations of the William Richards family who helped to create much of South Jersey’s history.
