This Week in Chester History…

In 1938, Chester Apgar reported that Budd Avenue and approximately 200 feet of Coleman Avenue were widened. Later, the remainder of Coleman Avenue and Fairmount Avenue from the Larison home to Dunn and Meserve’s gate also would be widened. Additionally, workers would add a new concrete pipe and catch basin to the intersections of Budd Avenue and Cherry Street, and Budd Avenue and Orange Street. A total of $6500 was spent on these road repair projects, as well as repaving. Source: The Mendham-Chester Tribune
