Once part of the original Newark land tract of 1666, Nutley has grown from a weekend getaway for tired New Yorkers and a permanent home for artists and writers into a charming town of 30,000 residents. Though only three square miles in area, Nutley boasts over 125 acres of park land, as well as the beautiful Third River, which runs through the town. In Nutley, author John Demmer presents a fascinating look at the changes the town has undergone, as well as the life of its residents through the years. Demmer also illustrates Nutley’s earliest commercial industry, the brownstone quarry, as well as the textile and banker’s safety paper industry.

Focusing primarily on the time period from the early 1890s to the 1950s, a time of tremendous growth for the town, Demmer’s work features images selected from private collections, historical society archives, and from the author’s own large personal collection. Many of these images have never before been published. Drawing on his experience as a postcard collector and member of the Nutley Historical Society, Demmer has produced a book that will interest everyone, from the first-time visitor to the lifelong resident.
