Local Residents Write History of Swedesboro


Lois M. Stanley, a former Kingsway teacher and long-time local resident, along with Russel C. Shiveler, Jr., a descendent of one of the area farming families, and the Swedesboro-Woolwich Historical Society, have co-authored a book on the History of Swedesboro and Woolwich Township.

The book, published by Arcadia Publishing, is on sale now. It can be purchased for $21.99 (plus Shipping & Handling, if mailed) by contacting Lois Stanley at (856) 467-1889 or click here to contact the Swedesboro-Woolwich Historical Society to order via e-mail. All books purchased through Mrs. Stanley are personalized and signed by the authors upon request.  The book is also available at major book stores, but purchasing at alternate locations does not benefit the Swedesboro-Woolwich Historical Society.
