More About Kearny by Barbara Krasner; Kearny Museum
 
 
 
Overview
Since its 1668 purchase by Captain William Sandford, a nine and three-quarter square mile piece of land
between the Passaic and Hackensack Rivers, known since 1898 as the Township of Kearny, has been at the crossroads of history. Industry, great estates, Scottish culture, and world-famous soccer teams have peppered Kearny with a rich, but little-known history. For the first time, the vast holdings of the Kearny Museum, the AT&T Archives, and personal postcard and photograph collections are assembled in one place: Kearny. This book, developed in conjunction with the Kearny Museum, brings the little-known history of Kearny to life. More than 200 photographs and author Barbara Krasner s painstaking research beautifully and eloquently detail the story of the town, known at different times in its past as Mighgecticok, New Barbadoes Neck, Lodi, Harrison, and of course, Kearny. These pages offer a wonderful journey through the City of Opportunity and its storied past, full of kilts, bagpipes, copper mines, textile mills, war heroes, and World Cup Champions."
