I have a special fondness for old maps. Indeed there are a number of digitized maps in the Hamilton Library's Local History Collection dated back to the 1840's and earlier. However, one of my favorites is from a 1905 Atlas of Trenton, New Jersey with only a smattering of Hamilton Township which is shown in the map above. Over the years, I have been asked to define the boundaries of Forest Valley. The adjoining community of]
Cedar Lawn makes the task impossible for me. Perhaps a visitor familiar with the area can determine which streets fall within which neighborhood.

It is impossible to see the street names on the map which includes "The Valley" (as it was called by the residents.) I do know it included Forest Ave. (now Arena Drive) and past Taylor Ave down to the ball field. (Forest Ave did not go all the way to White Horse-Mercerville Road until sometime in the '50s.)
