Back in the 19th century, Henry N. Smith a very wealthy man, purchased land shown in the area map above and developed it into the Fashion Stud Farm. It was a gathering place from all over America for those were involved in trotting race. Following many years of research, I have failed to find any photos or engravings of the farm, but it included a very beautiful trotting track a Kentucky Derby type grandstand. Civil War General Ulysses S. Grant stabled 2 horsed at the stud farm. Unfortunately, they were the victims of a horrendous fire that burned the stables back in December,1907. In November, I will be presenting an on screen presentation covering the Fashion Stud Farm and the Interstate Fair (known to most of us as the N.J.State Fair.
