1848: SAND HILLS (YARDVILLE) A PORK SHIPPING CENTER
In going into my early newspapers, I have found an interesting and little known bit of history. We all know that Hamilton was a very rural farming part of central New Jersey. The "little known bit of history" lies in the stories of the numerous Burlington, Monmouth and Mercer County farmers who opted raised pigs and shipped pork to the big cities from the Camden and Amboy depot at Sand Hills. Fascinating!
