1869: TRENTON MORPHING FROM A VILLAGE TO A CITY

This is a true historic treasure. As state in the article on the expansion of the city in the only direction possible, and that was to the east and southeast via the Crosswicks and Trenton Turnpike (today's Broad Street.) The wealthy Trentonians began to build luxurious mansions along Greenwood Avenue which at the time was considered to be in the country. Fascinating read for those of us who are into "hard core" Trenton history.
