New Jersey marks its 350th birthday this year (2014) and what better way to celebrate than to delve into its rich colonial past in New Jersey's Colonial Architecture Told in 100 Buildings. Today, in this most developed and crowded of states, a surprising number of buildings are still standing from our Colonial Era, 1636 to 1783. They range from a Royal Governor's mansion in Perth Amboy; to Sandy Hook Lighthouse in Monmouth County; to Christ Episcopal Church in Shrewsbury; to the still functioning Black Horse Inn in Mendham; to a law office in Salem City; to Moravian Gristmill in Hope; to the nation's oldest farm building in Greenwich. New Jersey's extensive architectural heritage is often overshadowed by its neighbors-Philadelphia and New York City-but the Garden State has more varied every-day colonial architecture than any other state because it was the most diverse colony settled by Swedes, Dutch, Scotch, French, English Quakers, and others who brought their architectural traditions with them. The book tells the story of this rich colonial architecture heritage in more than 100 color photographs and captions.
