The Paintworks – Gibbsboro NJ

On a minor detour for my Side Street Sunday post I went to the former location of Lucas Paints affectionately called “The Paintworks” of Gibbsboro New Jersey.  Looking up some of the history shows that the Lucas’ searched most rivers east of the Mississippi to find a lake that had the least amount of minerals in it and found that Silver Lake was perfect for his paint making needs.

Although they did not know it at the time the making of lead based paint contaminated the lake.  Over the years the lake was cleaned and turned into a beautiful park with a walking/running trail.
