Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is known today for its shopping centers and residential neighborhoods. This tightknit community, founded in the 1600s by English followers of William Penn, began as a collection of hardworking farm families and early American Patriots. The town played an important role as the crossroads of the American Revolution"? and bravely fought to help southern slaves to freedom using the Underground Railroad. Townspeople persevered through the turbulent and trying times of the early twentieth century, eventually to triumph in building the haven from the hustle and bustle of Philadelphia that it is today. From its agrarian roots to the excitement of the Garden State Park racecourse, join authors Mike Mathis and Lisa Mangiafico as they take you through an illustrated, imaginative tour of Cherry Hill's past and present."
