Historic Map - Rockaway, NJ - 1902

Rockaway, New Jersey / Fowler & Bailey, del. & pub.

Reproduction panoramic view of Rockaway, New Jersey drawn and published by Fowler & Bailey in 1902. First settled by Europeans in the early 1700's, Rockaway was established as a borough in 1894. The area prospered as a mining community with forges and farms. In the early 1800's, the Morris Canal was completed through town. The canal was used to transport ore for the mines for use in the iron industry and the community grew with its use. When the railroads arrived the transportation time was greatly reduced for these shipments. Rockaway's mining industry dried up in the early 1900's, but was revived for some time after World War II.

The map from 1902 includes clearly labeled streets, buildings, railroad line and canal. It features inset illustrations of the following:
