Product Overview

First settled in the late 1600s by European immigrants, Linwood is a small suburban community on the southern New Jersey shore between Atlantic City and Ocean City. Known as Leedsville in the early 1800s, Linwood lies between Patcong Creek and Scull's Bay. Its location made shipbuilding, shipping, and fishing the prominent livelihoods of locals from the eighteenth century to the twentieth. Farming was another principal occupation for many families. Linwood was home to the Dennis Farm, once part of a Colonial plantation that prospered through World War II.

With more than two hundred vintage images, Linwood presents the view along the road from Leedsville to Linwood. Treasured nineteenth-century homes throughout the community provide a glimpse of the early years. Featured are such personalities as sea captains Israel Adams and Peter Reed, blacksmith Harry Potter, teacher Lizzie Cavileer, and chief of police Jesse James. Also included are well-known locales, such as Stuber's and Hagerthey's corner stores, the Mill Pond, Linwood Station, Belhaven and Leedsville Schools, and historic area churches.
