1889: Isaac DeCou Ceases Farming
Trenton Evening Times, January 3, 1889
Isaac DeCou placed this ad one day after selling his farm to the Broad Street Land Association (James F. Rusling, et al) on January 2, 1889. DeCou's farm stretched from the bluff above Spring Lake to South Broad Street approximately between New Cedar Lane and Rowan Avenue. The Broad Street Land Association subdivided the land and developed Broad Street Park as we know it today.
