The Lost Towns of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, Part III
The Historic Village of Smithville: Smithville has undergone many changes throughout its 100 history as an industrial village, from 1830-1920s. Beginning as Shreveville, this village grew from a small mill operation on the Rancocas Creek to a major industrial plant. Under the tutelage of HB Smith, the town was renamed Smithville and is known to have been ahead of its time in town planning, sustainability, workers’ rights, and culture. We will visit this grand dame of Burlington County and see the beauty and majesty that remains.
