This Week in Chester History…

At the first June Chester Borough Council meeting of 1938, Chester Apgar reported that all of Budd Avenue and approximately 200 ft. of Coleman Avenue were widened. A new concrete pipe and catch basin were to be installed along Budd Avenue at both Cherry and Orange Streets. A total of $2,500 had been spent on the road widening project, with $4,000 left to be spent on the remaining widening on Coleman and Fairmount Avenues. Source: Mendham-Chester Tribune
