The Medford Township decision makers, who are also residents, try to avoid the use of pesticide, but will also make weighted decisions and take action when necessary to avoid larger ecological damages.Such is the case with the 2008 Gypsy Moth program that is begin carried out under state (and U.S. Forestry Service) guidelines and control.  Gypsy moth egg mass surveys, conducted by the New Jersey Department of Agriculture (NJ DOA), indicate that gypsy moth populations will be very high during May and June 2008.

Kirby's Mill is one of the largest and oldest mill complexes remaining in southern New Jersey.  It was built in 1778 by Isaac Haines and originally known as Haines Mill.  It became Kirby's Mill after William Kirby purchased it in 1877.  Here grain for the Continental Army was processed, and the mill became a center of commerce and information in the surrounding communities from the eighteenth through the early twentieth centuries. The mill exhibits distinctive wooden pegs and wedges, and is a fine example of massive timber construction.  The Medford Historical Society purchased it from the Kirby brothers in 1969. Kirby's Mill was declared a State Historic Site in July of 1971 and was placed on the National Register of Historic Sites in September of 1972.  Kirby's Mill is located in Sout...

The past Sunday was the annual Arts, Music and Antiques Festival hosted by the Medford Village Historical Society. This year we had the threat of rain hovering over the event.   The rains did come, but they held off with just a few sprinkles until later in the afternoon, so we we able to successfully hold the event while only shortening it by about an hour when the rains began coming steadily and gradually increasing in intensity.For those of you who attended and stopped by our booth, we thank you.  If you missed it, then plan for next year as the discussion was already underway about making the next year's festival even bigger and better.     For real estate resources, help and support services in acquiring or selling properties in New Jersey, Visit my web site: LawrenceYerkes.com   an...
