Ghost Towns and Other Quirky Places in the New Jersey Pine Barrens
By Barbara Solem-Stull
"With Ghost Towns as your guide, you can create your own living history in the Pine Barrens."

New York Times

The Pine Barrens of New Jersey contain more ghost towns, some say, than the entire American west. In Ghost Towns and Other Quirky Places in the New Jersey Pine Barrens author Barbara Solem-Stull tells the story of the towns that rose up around the iron furnaces, glass factories, paper mills, cranberry farms, and brick making establishments of the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries.

A popular Pinelands speaker and tour guide, Solem-Stull has written much more than an armchair guide to the area’s ghost towns: Loaded with easy-to-use maps and over 100 photographs and illustrations, the book provides driving directions and self-guided walking tours of many of the Pine Barrens’ most intriguing historic sites and ruins. This unique field guide is an essential resource for anyone interested in the history of Pinelands ghost towns and in exploring these long-ago communities firsthand.

"The first comprehensive field guide to the scattered and fading remnants of the region's past."

"As much a definitive Pine Barrens guidebook as it is a riveting history lesson."
