An HDR image from Main Street in Lumberton NJ. I was trying to capture the feeling of this small town.
Lumberton or, as it was once known, Lumbertown, was a pioneer settlement. Its name came from the fact that Pine trees were abundant in the vicinity, and boats and rafts carried lumber and cord wood from the Rancocas Creek to Philadelphia and other places. There were two or three lumberyards and saw mills at one time. In 1683, Robert Dimsdale, an English physician, bought a tract of land from William Penn on the North side of the Rancocas Creek.
I love to talk my kids to visit Jersey Jerry’s apple farm. It makes me sad that this wonder farm is gone, but not forgotten.
