1915: THE ROBERT PEARSON HOUSE

Gone but not forgotten is the historic Robert Pearson House, not to be confused with the Isaac Pearson House over on Hamilton's Independence Avenue. The Robert Pearson House is no more. Using today's topography, it was located beyond the White Horse Circle between White Horse and Yardville, in the general area of the apartments on South Broad Street and in closer proximity to Crosswicks Creek and the area in which I believed "Asay Springs" was located. I have been searching for years for information of the Asay Springs-Bordentown Water Works connection. Hopefully, more info will evolve as I dig deeper and deeper into my newspaper collection. I have learned that the area from Riverview Cemetery down in South Trenton, and the marshes southeastward to Spring Lake and Bordentown were the site of numerous natural springs.
