Side Street Sunday – Over Half a Millennium Old
Today my travels lead me to venture into Salem County New Jersey. My mother told me about this old oak tree that has been around for over 500 years. I had to find this tree.
I found the oak tree after getting lost for about 45 minutes. This old oak was pretty big. I was not able to capture the entire tree with the lens that I had.
It is reported that back in the late 1670’s a treaty was signed (under this very tree) with the Lenni Lenape Indians for the land.
I wonder what stories would this old oak tell?
Thanks for visiting!
All comments welcome.
