Arcadia has published Bordentown books with great pictures that have a vast amount of its history showing the integrity of the town that continues to be so. Read about the Quakers who first settled the town. The Quaker Meeting house still stands and is in use! Bordentown’s history reads like a great story of adventure! Occupation by the British and Hessian’s, burning of Colonel Borden’s house while his wife sat in a rocking chair and watched. A library so well respected that it was left intact even though it belonged to a Signer of the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Paine never purchased property anywhere that he lived but he bought a house in Bordentown, and it still stands today. And there is so much more. Good Stuff!
