Old Steps At White City

Trenton Evening Times, August 23, 1959

This is the second picture of wooden steps associated with the amusement park that I have seen.  The other is in the Hamilton Township Public Library Local History Collection.  The Collection picture shows one set of wooden steps extending from the bottom to the top of the bluff.  This picture shows two sets of steps.  The steps in this picture could be the precursor to the concrete steps which still exist today or they may have been steps to access the lake from the Buchanan Avenue end of the Park.  I believe the latter is most reasonable.


  1. I think these steps started on Overlook Avenue, between Rowan and Buchanan. The curve is still there. Check it out sometime!
