This Week in Chester History

In 1955, the Chester Township League of Women Voters booklet, “This is Chester Township,” was sold for the first time. The booklet represents more
than a year of work and tells of the early history of the community up to 1955. The “Know Your Town” study organized by the League was led by Mrs. Bernard Sugerman, and the preparation of the booklet was supervised by Mrs. Edward Jenkins. The book was the first of its kind to be published in the area. Source: The Mendham-Chester Tribune.
