Pleasant surprises in New Jersey

Posted: March 09, 2020 by Dan Golden

While driving to a showing in Kingwood Township near Stockton, New Jersey, I cam across to things that really surprised me.

The first occurred while I was driving on Rosemont-Ringoes Road between Sergeantsville and Rosemont. As I came down a hill I had to slow to cross a covered bridge. Now I have heard about covered bridges in Bucks County, but I have never heard of any in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. But there it was.

It was the Green Sergeants Covered Bridge over the Wickercheoke Creek in Delaware Township. It was built in 1872 and is now one-way. It is the only historic covered bridge in New Jersey, though there is also a covered bridge in Cherry Hill. It was pretty cool riding across it.

Minutes later I was still driving along Rosemont-Ringoes Road through the prettiest stretch of farmland I have seen in quite a while. It certainly rivaled, and maybe even surpassed scenes of farms and fields that Hilltown, Solebury or Tinicum townships are famous for in Bucks County.  I was lucky enough to find a spot to pull over safely and snap a photo.

Those two surprises made my day.
