â€œOur promise is to honor the pastâ€¦by repeating its best lessons. Learning from our predecessors is an essential tool for teaching our descendants. It is this intersection where all rails join.â€ ~Jack Costantino. Pres., TFU~
The Morris Canal:
Sometimes history should repeat itself.
If there is a single development in the history of progress for our local area as well as the nation, it must be our network of transportation and the commerce it serves. After reviewing its extraordinary accountâ€¦ the expertise, inventiveness and sheer hard work of that process is starkly evident in the example of the 100 year history of New Jerseyâ€™s Morris Canal. (Circa 1820-1920).
