Although Rumson, New Jersey, spent much of its early existence unknown to the outside world, the borough has built a reputation for itself as a great American suburb. The many grand estates, such as Thomas McCarter's Rumson Hill, and sweeping panoramic views establish its place as one of the most desirable destinations in New Jersey. Occupying the eastern section of a peninsula formed by the Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers, the small but affluent community began as a seasonal home before the year-round activity took over.

Rumson Road, once a sandy path among the farms, grew into one of the most famed driving roads in the United States. Longtime residents will recognize familiar names and locales as they discover early Black Point, one of the first sites of the Rumson settlement. Thomas Hunt, whose Pavilion Hotel and steamboat for guests ushered in a new era of resort activity, altered the face of the community in 1845. Most of the town's spiritual, social, and community organizations began in Oceanic, whose permanent residents led the campaign to make Rumson a borough. The new history Rumson: Shaping a Superlative Suburb keeps readers captivated with lively narrative and beautiful images featuring the influential people and places that contribute to Rumson's past and present.

About the Author:

Local author and historian Randall Gabrielan continues in the tradition of his two volumes of Rumson pictorial histories in Arcadia's popular Images of America series. In this book, Gabrielan expands his scope and still presents many previously unpublished images for the pleasure of both devoted fans and new readers of Rumson's past. His experience and care are evident in Rumson: Shaping a Superlative Suburb, a history that deserves a place in bookcases of residents and visitors alike.
