Things are looking up for Manville history buffs. Two recently announced projects are sure to inspire a new appreciation for the borough which split from Hillsborough in 1929.
The first is a history book being compiled by members of the Manville Library Board with help from former borough councilwoman and writer Kathye Quick. You can read more about the project here.
The second is a new blog started by Manville resident Mike Polnasek featuring photos and stories of the borough's past. This blog is truly interactive - some of the most interesting tidbits are to be found in the comments left by readers. If you are a long time resident of Manville or Hillsborough, or just someone who wants to learn more about our two towns and their shared history, I suggest you check it out here.
