1911: Blackwell's Enterprise

Trenton Evening Times, March 5, 1911

     Mr. Blackwell's advertisement helps us envision Broad Street Park in the early part of the 20th century when many small farms were prevalent.   Research on Mr. Blackwell revealed that while his farm yard was at 368 Lafayette Avenue, he resided at 92 Lafayette Avenue.  He was a son-in-law of Wesley Gibbs and served as treasurer of the Broad Street Park Civic Association
