For over 200 years, the small village of Dingmans Ferry grew along the banks of the Delaware River. This once small town thrived first as a farming community and later as a summer retreat for New York and Philadelphia residents. Dingmans Ferry provides a tour of this fascinating community that was lost in the late 1970s after the area was purchased for the proposed Tocks Island Dam Project. The incredible mills, country churches, one-room schools, and family homes come alive in this grand photo essay. Drawn from the collections of the Dingmans Ferry/Delaware Township Historical Society, Pike County Historical Society, and private collections, these photographs include familiar sights such as Darragh Mill, St. John's Episcopal Church, and the Academy. Famous residents such as Chief Thundercloud and Marie Zimmerman are also highlighted in this photographic journey through an area long forgotten.
