Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738563293, Paperback)

The images in this impressive collection date back to 1860 and the beginnings of Maplewood. Enhanced by the informative text of local historians John Bausmith and Howard Wiseman, Maplewood provides a fascinating journey through the history of this New Jersey community. When the first train station was built in Maplewood in 1860, city dwellers began to leave New York for this picturesque, suburban town. The community offered great schools, great transportation, and beautiful surroundings. The area became home to Asher Brown Durand, the father of American landscape painting, and Seth Boyden, who was called "one of America's greatest inventors" by Thomas Edison. Theodore Roosevelt spent summers at his uncle's Maplewood estate and enjoyed the clear

mountain air.
