About this item
Dennis Township is more than a swampy, desolate locale tourists drive through to reach the beach at the Jersey Shore. It is actually eight unique communities, stretching from the Garden State Parkway to the east to Delaware Bay and Cumberland County to the west. Dennis is farmland and forests of oak and pine. Meadows teem with wildlife, all just minutes away from busy beaches. Dennis Township is also about people, many of whom trace their roots back to before the American Revolution. It has a population of determined individualists, mixed with just enough "new blood" to sustain a vibrant community. Geography and people invigorate the township's eight hamlets, including Dennisville, Belleplain, and South Seaville, which were formerly independent towns but are now more regarded as signposts along the traveler's way. People have lived there for generations and will be living there still long after the tourists have moved on. This books tells more than one story, but all of the stories equally make Dennis Township the special place it long has been.
