Union Revisited, Images of America

Union Township has changed dramatically since the 1950s. The town was still very rural in those days. O'Mara's Farm sold fresh fruit to local kids on their daily trek home from school; Headley's Cider Mill sold homemade cider that tasted like real apples and sausages that tasted like nothing that has ever been tasted before or since. Neighbors knew each other's name and waved hello from seats on their front steps. But O'Mara's and Headley's are gone today, as are Woolworths, Whitney's, and Nawrocki's Pharmacy. New neighbors have replaced the old. Even Union High School, once a local landmark on Caldwell Avenue, has a new home on North Third Street. Union Revisited illustrates these changes and shares Union's past, and while one can never live there again, it might be a really nice place to visit.
