South Jersey History:
njpinebarrens.com – Ben has a GREAT site. The highlights for me are the maps and the forums, which are filled with people that know a heck of a lot more than I do. Been a member there for ten years, so I can say for certain it’s one of the best sites on the internets.
Ghost Towns of Southern NJ yahoo mailing list and Old and Historic Places facebook group – this has been around for a loooooong time (it is a yahoo group), but lots of great stuff in the archives and occasional new posts. The facebook group is booming though, lots of posts from Barry’s explorations and old postcards from his collection.
West Jersey History Project website and facebook – again, great website and facebook group with lots of great information and old pictures.
