Two from New Jersey

New Jersey - Raritan River Grist Mill

For: US to US Travelling Envelope Round Robin - Group 69
Notes: The Raritan River is located in central New Jersey, and it provides much of the drinking water for the area it flows through.  It empties into Raritan Bay along the Atlantic coast.  The building shown here is the Red Mill, located in Clinton along the south branch of the river.  It houses the Hunterdon Historical Museum.  Across the river is the Stone Mill, which houses the Hunterdon Museum of Art.



New Jersey - Grace Lord Park, Boonton

For: US to US Travelling Envelope Round Robin - Group 69
Notes: Boonton is a town of about 8,400 people in northern New Jersey.  Shown here is Grace Lord Park, located in downtown Boonton along the Rockaway River.  The park's biggest attraction is Boonton Falls, formed by a dam across the river.  The park, and specifically the river, suffered quite a bit of damage during Hurricane Irene in 2011.
