Franklin, Hamburg, Ogdensburg, and Hardyston
Franklin, Hamburg, Ogdensburg, and Hardyston chronicles the settlement and life of the Wallkill Valley area of northern New Jersey. In rare photographs, the book reveals the history of the people and places in the communities of Franklin, Hamburg, Ogdensburg, and Hardyston. Beginning entirely as Hardyston Township, the area developed into four communities, each with distinctive qualities. Franklin is the "Fluorescent Mineral Capital of the World," as declared by the U.S. Congress, and with its zinc mines, is known as the "Model Mining Town of America." Hamburg from early times was a crossroads and business district. Ogdensburg possessed several mines and Thomas Edison interests. Hardyston, with its lakes for summer visitors and still-thriving farmland, retains the beauty of its natural surroundings.
