This project began as a collection of
historic documents which turned out
to be not only interesting but historically and culturally significant.
American Deeds collection puts us at the threshold of a fascinating
story about the last Native American
tribe to live here. This research has documented the lost pieces of
local history for the period 1600-1700. It allows us to make a crosswalk
between the 17th and 21st century Essex County landscapes with focus
on our Native American heritage.
