1939 - Letter to Close Lyons Train Station
On this day in local history: July 18 1939 - The Bernards Township Committee responded on Tuesday July 18 to a letter in which the Lackawanna Railroad said it would be compelled to close the Lyons Station unless ridership and revenue there increased. A failure to boost revenue at Lyons would result in the governing body having its counsel take steps to prevent the closing (It never closed). #dayinhistory #mrlocalhistory Bernardsville News

1917 - Somerset Hills Golf Clubhouse to Open
On this day in local history: The new clubhouse and grounds of the Somerset Hills Country Club in Bernardsville are expected to open on Saturday when nine holes “will be in readiness for the players,” The News said on Thursday, July 12, 1917. The 275-acre site, purchased from the Frederick P. Olcott estate in early 1916 for $60,000, featured the residence of the late Mr. Olcott near the entrance, and a new club house of stone and concrete a few hundred yards south. “Adjacent to the club house are the tennis courts and south of the building, a natural ravine formed by Round Top to the east and Mt. Harmony to the west, has been dammed to confine a lake of goodly portions on which canoes will glide to and fro,” the story said. #dayinhistory #mrlocalhistory
