- A Survey of Coal-Handling Facilities on the Morris Canal
The Morris Canal was opened in 1832 between Phillipsburg, Pennsylvania and Newark, New Jersey, and an extension to Jersey City was completed in 1838. Archeological investigations for Newark Highway Access Feasibility Study identified the locations of three coal yards adjacent to the Morris Canal. The report describes a comprehensive survey of coal-handling facilities formerly located on the Morris Canal in the Counties of Essex, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Sussex and Warren. This survey was completed for the NJDOT by the Cultural Resources unit of the RBA Group in 1999.
