Mount Tabor | Parsippany, New Jersey

Mount Tabor, New Jersey

 

Mount Tabor, New Jersey in Morris County was started as a Methodist Camp Revival Meeting town, just as Ocean Grove was in Monmouth County. 

 

Mount Tabor was an independent town until 1980, and is now technically part of Parsippany, New Jersey -- but still has a separate feeling.

 

It has interesting gingerbready houses and still has a strong religious feel. 

 

Yes, some of the pictures look crooked, but for once it's not my fault, because  the streets are very hilly!

Last summer, I wrote about Ocean Grove, a Methodist Camp Revival town down the shore. You can check out those photos here.

I took these photos in December at the Zenas Crane Homestead in West Caldwell, which is currently serving as the home of the town historical society. 

 

The house is faithful to the furnishings of the period, right down to the chamber pots!
