Upper Township (after being known as the Upper Precinct of Cape May County since 1723) was founded in 1798 by John Townsend, but actually, the area was first inhabited by the Lenni Lenape Indians, who lived there and hunted in the rivers and woods for food for hundreds of years. The area grew as people from New York, northern New Jersey, and other outlying areas came to the region for its rich land and natural resources. Whaling, shipbuilding, and farming became the principal jobs. They brought their cultures and religions with them (Quakers, Baptists, Methodists, and Presbyterians), and gradually, an area of just a few villages developed into a larger township with 10 different villages. 

This will be a closer examination of the photographs used in Mr. Holden’s Feb. 2020 publication of the above title. The presentation will be a PowerPoint and discussion of the photographs he gleaned from a variety of sources for this book. Viewers who know Upper Township or simply LOVE old photographs from a South Jersey town, will enjoy this presentation.


Mr. Robert Holden, is a retired Ocean City Gifted/talented teacher (ret.-2006) and retired Senior Adjunct Professor of History, teaching WC 1, WC 2, and his own created Holocaust and Genocide Studies Course at ACCC’s Cape May County campus. (ret. -2016)

He is on the board of the SJHC, the HPSUT and the Seaville Friends Meeting.

He has published several secondary history curriculum guides, one book (presentation at UT Library in December, (and is currently awaiting finalizing/publishing his second book about the Chinese diplomat, Feng-Shan Ho who saved thousands of Viennese Jews during the Holocaust by writing them visas to Shanghai. This will be a young adult non-fiction book.)
