Northfield is a vibrant South Jersey community with farm, seaport, and shipbuilding beginnings. First settled in the late 1700s, it is a place of beautiful homes built by ship captains during the 1700s and 1800s. Northfield portrays the history of the community with stunning photographs and a wealth of fascinating detail. The Northfield Historical Society and Northfield Cultural Committee selected some two hundred views of people, places, and events to document various aspects of the city.
Our extensive photographic image collection contains the works of Silas Morse and Albert Moore, two local photographers active in the mid to late 19th century. The collection includes amazing scenes from early Atlantic City as well as other communities around the county. We have thousands of photographic images including daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes, lanternslides, glass plate negatives, snapshots, commercial prints and 35mm slides.
