During its first 200 years, New Garden Townships settlers and citizens reaped the bounty of its natural resources. Granite veins within its the northern ridge, clay deposits under its southern plain, and waterpower coursing through its pitched hillsMoreDuring its first 200 years, New Garden Townships settlers and citizens reaped the bounty of its natural resources. Granite veins within its the northern ridge, clay deposits under its southern plain, and waterpower coursing through its pitched hills surrounded a fertile central plateau.

Toughkenamon, Kaolin, and Landenberg rose to industrial eminence while the village maintained its Quaker and agricultural influences. When the 20th century rendered the creeks mills, mines, and quarries obsolete, New Gardens population and promise shrank with its industry.

Then mushroom farming bloomed, and Quaker ingenuity and immigrant ambition built a new, multimillion-dollar agricultural enterprise. New Garden Township provides a visual record of vintage photographs accompanied by archival research and narratives from lifelong residents to intimately depict the townships transformations through the generations.
