Discovering Barnegat Bay: What's in a Name? Names from Nature

Discovering Barnegat Bay: What's in a Name? Names from Nature

The cold, clear waters of Cedar Creek once provided raw material and power for two Pinelands industries at the uniquely named hamlet of Double Trouble. Utilizing colonial era survey maps, historic pictures and the “What’s in a Name? Names from Nature” section of the Discovering Barnegat Bay guide, we’ll see how names of waterways and land in Ocean County's Barnegat Bay Watershed give perspective to how settlers viewed or utilized the resources of this area.  

Presented by Andrew Anderson, Historian, Double Trouble Village State Historic Site.
