The Nail and Iron Works branches out and takes


on some auxiliary projects.

t didnt take long for the


Cumberland Nail and Iron Works
to make its mark. One of
Bridgetons leading industries of
the 19th century founded in 1815 by
Benjamin and David Reeves and their
partners James and Joseph Whitaker and
Robert S. Buck, the business utilized the
ideal location of the western bank of the
Cohansey River for its water-powered
mill. But it would soon have a parallel factory in a neighboring state.
The Reeves and Whitakers were eager
to try their hand at a similar operation in
Pennsylvania, and in 1828 purchased an
iron works in Phoenixville christened
Reeves and Whitaker. According to Mary
Elizabeth Sinnotts the Annals of the
Sinnott, Rogers, Coffin, Corlies, Reeves,
Bodine and Allied Families, the
Pennsylvania works had been in operation since 1790. Upon making the purchase, the owners enlarged and improved
the plant, and built a blast furnace. Mr.
Reeves continued at the head of the firm
until his death, and he bequeathed a
handsome fortune to his family. Both he
and his brother David were recognized as
men of unusual intellectual resources, and
they possessed a strength of purpose and a
degree of energy which, with their sterling integrity, gave them high rank in the
business world.
The Phoenixville project wasnt the
first undertaken by Benjamin Reeves after
he and his brother established their business on the Cohansey River. In 1818, the
Bridgeton factorys growing achievements
seemed to have influenced Benjamin to
pursue another business interest.
According to A Souvenir of Bridgeton, N.J.,
the Metropolis of Southern New Jersey,
edited by William B. Kirby, Reeves conveyed to Daniel P. Stratton the undivided
half part of a lot of land situated on the
west side of the Cohansey river a little
north of the Commerce street bridge, and
half of a sufficient quantity of water to
drive a first-class merchant flour mill, it
being the intention that Mr. Stratton and
Mr. David Reeves should erect the mill
together as joint owners. However,
Reeves soon began having second
thoughts about the matter. He feared that
he might be depriving his nail company of
sufficient water power and refused to

build the flour mill.


Stratton undertook legal action and
had the lot divided in half, building a mill
on the portion that was declared his in
1820. Three years later, a commission
appointed to determine the quantity of
water Mr. Stratton was entitled to, in lieu
of the fact that Mr. Reeves had not fulfilled his part of the contract, awarded to
him sufficient water with which to operate his mills.
What is interesting is that the flour mill
apparently had no effect on the operations
of the Reeves business. Whats more is
that Stratton met with continued success
in his endeavors, managing the plant until
his 1841 death. Upon his demise, his
widow took over operations until 1846,
when she established a partnership with
John Holmes until 1852 and then rented it
to a company that managed it for another
few years. When it was finally sold in 1858
to Richard Lott, it became even more successful.
This was the last project Reeves would
attempt without his brother or business
partners, but, in hindsight, his decision to
walk away from this endeavor with
Stratton cost him a second business that
maintained the success and longevity of
his iron works.
Back in Bridgeton, where the
Cumberland Nail and Iron Works was still
known as Reeves, Buck & Co., the partners
had decided it was time to undertake a
new project to enhance their operation. In
1839, according to the Acts of Legislature
of the State of New Jersey, they wanted to
increase their water power, and extend
their business by erecting other manufactories in said town; and that an increase of
water power would be obtained to a large
extent by constructing a dam and floodgates across Cohansey Creek, at some
point above the present constructed nail
factory. The State saw fit to approve the
request on the condition that the partners
shall continue to keep up and maintain
said dam and floodgates at their own
expense. The partners and their heirs
were given exclusive rights for manufacturing and other purposes as long as they
honored their agreement concerning the
maintenance of the dam and floodgates. I

VMU Offers New Detailed


Utility Bill, Online Capabilities
Vineland Municipal Utilities (VMU)
recent utility billing software upgrade will
provide customers a more detailed bill,
which will include a break-down of services being charged, a service usage bar graph,
and a detailed meter reading summary. The
back of the bill will include useful contact
information and payment options. The first
of the new bills was mailed out on June 23.
The look and layout of the new utility
bill is the most noticeable change. The new
look and layout is intended to provide
VMU customers with the tools needed to
better monitor electric and water consumption. The 12-month service bar graph
is a tool customers can use to better budget
their utility costs.
New account numbers have been
assigned to all customers. Customers currently participating in the Preauthorized
Payment Plan (Automatic Bank Draft)
through VMU will not require any action.
Customers utilizing a third party payment
vendor or who pay through their bank will
need to update their account number with
that entity.
Expanded online self service capabilities

will be offered through VMUs Customer


Self Service (CSS) Portal. The new CSS
portal will allow customers to pay their
utility bill online using a credit card, debit
card, or e-check. In addition, customers
will be able to view their detailed bill, sign
up for e-bill (paperless billing), budget
billing, and/or Preauthorized Payment Plan
(Automatic Bank Draft). A newsletter
explaining the new bill will go out to customers along with the new bill.

2015 EP HENRY

The Clean Communities Program would


like to remind all Vineland residents that
according to New Jersey State Law, all
open vehicles transporting trash or other
waste must be tarped, or otherwise covered, to avoid spillage onto the roadways.
Vehicles transporting waste that is properly
bagged, below the height of the truck bed
and unable to spill onto the roadways, need
not be tarped.
According to Vineland officials, a typical
situation might arise from an individual
with a pick-up truck who has cleaned out a
garage or who has completed a do-it-yourself project and is looking to transport
waste to the Cumberland County landfill.
Individuals found to be in violation may
be issued a summons by state, county, or
municipal law enforcement officials, then
are required to appear in court and, if
found guilty, are subject to a fine not to
exceed $1,000 per occurrence. I

There were sundry topics in this


weekly manuscript that were contributed by members of a Bridgeton
literary association. Some of the leading citizens who wrote articles included Dr. Jonathan Elmer, Dr. Lewis
Howell, Richard Howell, Ebenezer
Elmer, Joseph Bloomfield and
Thomas Harris, Jr. (Note: Richard
Howell and Joseph Bloomfield later
became governors of New Jersey.)

A host of tours, lectures and


exhibits awaits visitors to
Bridgetons Old Broad Street Church
and Cemetery this summer as the
Broad Street Cemetery Association
(BSCA) targets each Sunday in July
for a unique new program, opening
up the church and revealing some of
its connections to hidden American
history between the Revolution and
the Civil War.
The program kicks off July 5th at 1
p.m. with three time-traveler tours
through the cemetery over the course
of the afternoon. Led by expert Jim
Bergmann, each 50-minute tour will
stress a different theme while mapping the old road and the evolution of
burials and monuments.
The two following Sundays feature historical talks on intriguing
aspects of post-Revolutionary South
Jersey. Historian Jonathan Wood
(July 12) unfolds the colorful life of
Jonathan Elmer, Patriot and
Bridgetown Presbyterian church
founder, who after an early career as
a Continental Congressman and
field doctor in the Revolution promoted national unity and influenced
early worship in the church. On July
19, African American history scholar
James Johnson sheds fresh light on
the quest for full citizenship in the
periods leading to and away from
the Civil War, focusing especially on
South Jersey African Americans
whose antislavery activities and
service for the Union helped gain
voting rights for black men in 1870.
The final program on July 26th
will be a capstone multimedia celebration of the church and its history,
featuring a series of eye-opening
exhibits of art, craft and photography
inspired by the old church in its historic and picturesque setting. Among
the standout items in this rich display will be Debbie Oliveros large,
exquisitely-crafted quilt honoring
Civil War soldiers buried in the
Broad Street cemetery, using fabric
of the Civil War era and working in
names, images, and other identifying
information about their lives.
Aficionados of the Revolutionary
and post-Revolutionary eras will be
glad to know that the iconic saltbox-style pub of Plain Dealer
fame known as Potters Tavern,
also on West Broad Street a few
blocks east of the church and
cemetery, will also be open these
same four History Sundays
from 1-4 p.m., hosted by the
Cumberland County Historical
Society.

Tavern keeper, Matthew Potter, Jr.


came to Bridgeton from Philadelphia
and opened the tavern in 1773. It
became a favorite meeting place for
the local young men just before the
Revolutionary War. Today, it is one of
New Jerseys most significant historical shrines and is an excellent example of the type of frame houses built
in New Jersey during the 17th and
18th centuries. It was here that the
Plain Dealer, Cumberland Countys
pioneer newspaper, was published for
the purpose of supporting the drive
for American liberty from the Crown
rule. The fact that Matthew Potter
gave a home to the Plain Dealer
placed him in personal danger, risking
a charge of treason during this time.
The distinguished historian, John T.
Cunningham, said that the fact the
Plain Dealer appeared every Tuesday
morning probably made it New
Jerseys first regular newspaper.

downtown and took the trolley to those on


the east and west ends. The agents and
brokers were impressed and came away
with some important information that can
take to prospective clients.
Some words of thank you are in order.
Foundation Title and Oak Mortgage were
sponsors of the event and subsidized some
of the costsincluding the I Wish I Was
A signs in the vacant buildings windows. I also want to thank my assistant,
Robin Barbetti, for her hard work in
meticulously planning out the agenda of
the tour. Thanks also to our Board
Chairperson Louise Bertacchi and our
Economic Restructuring Team
Chairperson Jane Jannarone, as well as
the members of our Board and volunteers
who helped. Equally important, I want to
thank the brokers and agents who came
from near and far to see what we have to
offer. We want to have another one in the
fall to follow up on the success of the one
we just had.
As you read this, well have just had our
inaugural meeting of our new Millennial
Advisory Board and, as I write this, were
excited about and eagerly anticipating the
momentum from the broker/agents tour
carrying over into the birth of this new
group. As I said last week, we see the millennials, Gen X, and Gen Y groups as the
generations to be our future business
owners and leaders, and the ones to carry
our downtown into the futureand to
work in tandem with the baby boomers
and our current established business owners and leaders. This will play a key role in
filling the vacancies downtown and thats
why the broker/agents tour we hadand
future toursare so crucial. Were continuing to look for more representatives in
the late-teen to mid-40s age bracket to
serve on Millennial Advisory Board. If
youre interested, contact us at 856-7948652 or at rswanson@vinelandcity.org.
You probably have read by now about
the upcoming closure of the Amish
Market. Nobody likes to see businesses
close and much time and effort was devoted to try to make this venture a success. In
the light of the broker/agents tour and the
establishment of our Millennial Advisory
Board, however, this development should
be seen as an opportunity. The Landis
MarketPlace building is an anchor for our
downtown and it presents a challenge and
a great chance to the upcoming generation
of business owners and leaders to rebrand
the market into a destination that will play
a key role in the downtown Vineland of
the future. I

Simple Ideas for


Entertaining at Home
With the
arrival of
warmer
weather and
longer days
come many
wonderful
reasons to
gather with
family and
friends. From
graduations
to weddings,
this is a season of celebrationsbig and small.
Entertaining at home is a lovely way
to bring people together. Whether you
are toasting newlyweds or hosting a
backyard barbecue, treat guests to simple food and fruit-forward, approachable
wine.
To start your next event off on an
elegant and delicious note, offer guests
Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Roulades
(recipe follows) paired with a
Chardonnay. The lushness of the wine
perfectly complements the lightly salty
tang of the roulades.
Depending on the occasion, you may
want to offer guests a choice of white or
red wine. Whites should be served
slightly chilled but not cold. Red wine
shouldn't be chilled, but be careful it
hasn't been allowed to get too hot. A

The Cumberland County Positive Youth Development


Coalition (CCPYDC) presented awards to the winners of its
community-wide poster contest on June 19 at the Luciano
Center at Cumberland County College.
The campaign aimed to create a student-driven message to
prevent shoplifting. The contest was open to all Vineland High
School and middle school students. Over 100 entries were
received.
Top prize winner was Evelyn Regino Reyes, a seventh-grader
from Wallace Intermediate School, who received a bike and safety helmet. The second place prizea Kindle electronic reader
was presented to Alexsia Gillespie, an eighth grade student from
Veterans Memorial Intermediate School. Third prize went to Vraj
Patel, a seventh grade student from Wallace, who received an
entertainment package featuring Fandango and dinner gift cards.
Serving as host of the ceremony was Capt. Tom Ulrich of the
Vineland Police Dept., who is also a member of the Coalition.
The CCPYDC is a community partnership of a wide variety of
stakeholders dedicated to reducing juvenile risky behaviors and
preventing delinquency. Data collected in the Vineland area
indicates that shoplifting is the predominant reason for juvenile
arrests, with the most arrests focused around Wawa and
Cumberland Mall before school, after school, and over Summer
Vacation. In light of this information, the Vineland Breakout
Group of the Coalition launched a student-led campaign to
raise awareness about the repercussions of shoplifting and its
effects on the community.
VPS TV covered the event and the news package will soon be available on our YouTube Channel VLDSchoolsTV.
TOP (L-R): Captain Tom Ulrich; Sara Filippi-Field, VHS representative; Evelyn Regino Reyes; Dr. Mary Gruccio,

Visits and Vino


How my brother finally got his wine and
why the episode illustrates our differences.

{ 22 } the grapevine | JULY 1, 2015

oing, going, gone. That pretty


much sums up my summer so far.
Week before last my sister, her
daughter, and her two grandsons
visited. It just happened to be the same time
my two Pennsylvania granddaughters also
were visiting for the week.
Next in line to visit is my brother, who
will be in Philly for an antique bank collectors
convention later this month.
He has been collecting those old metal
banks (and their contents) since we were kids.
His collection is on display as soon as you
enter his home and is (as I mentioned to my
wife the first time we saw it) probably worth
more than our house.
Last year, some readers will recall, I asked
for some suggestions about what local treats I
could send my brother and sister as they had
both been very generous in sending me food
gifts (a family tradition) during my rehabs.
My sister got chocolate and my brother

didnt get anything.


The reason he didnt get anything is
because I couldnt figure out a way to beat
the system.
What happened was a reader of the column offered a couple of bottles of his prizewinning homemade wine.
My brother is a wine snob and it seemed
like a perfect gift for someone who literally
has everything.
First, I couldnt send it because he was
away in California from Thanksgiving
through Christmas visiting his grandchildren
and later, his friends in Palm Springs.
A quick story on how the rich get richer:
The friends he was staying with have a backyard that looks out on the mountains.
My brother mentioned how much nicer
the view would be if his friend put up a few
floodlights.
The friend said yeah, but that would be
a lot of work.

Well, the friend had to take care of some


business the next day and left my brother to
fend for himself.
What he did was go out and buy the
floodlights and then set them up so that
evening when they went out on the back
patio my brother flipped a switch and let
there be light.
Well, all the guys neighbors couldnt
help noticing what hed done and started
calling and asking for the name of his electrical contractor.
My brother did a couple of quick jobs and
paid for his trip.
When he got back I called and told him
about the wine and said I would send it
ASAP if he were going to be home.
I went to Bellview winery and bought a
special box for shipping bottles of wine, got
it all packaged up nice and neat and went to
the post office.
Well, it turns out you cant send alcohol
through the U.S. mail. The clerk suggested
trying one of the private mailers like UPS.
So, I tried taking it to the Mail Room where
they told me pretty much the same thing but
suggested I try the main office of UPS.
I did, but the answer was always the same.
Turns out he wouldnt have received it
anyway because he spent most of January
and February visiting Hawaii for six weeks.
When we spoke again after his return, I
told him about my frustrations with the mail
system.

He told me that when he was in Hawaii,


he visited a new distillery there that makes a
sea-water vodka called Ocean.
He said it came in perfectly round bottles
and he sent a couple of bottles to friends.
I said I was surprised because I thought
the postal rules were federal and the same in
all the states.
He said he was aware of the rules and
simply told the postal clerk that what was in
the packages were Hawaiian snow globes.
(Studies show that every American violates four or five state, federal or local laws
each and every day.)
Yet another reason why hes traveling the
world and I think its a big deal to drive to
Elmer.
March and part of April he spent in
Holland because his wife expressed an interest in tulips.
My sister agreed to take the wine back to
my brother and my sister-in-law said she would
make sure he lets me know how he likes it.
But I know my brother, it wont be a
simple phone call.
No, hell hook up with me sometime during his visit and well go some place for
lunch where he will order an $80 bottle of
wine to go with our pizza.
And, then hell tell me how much he liked
the wine. I

Dave Hanrahan, of Capital Bank prefaced Chews remarks by saying that

cyber risks being the single greatest risk

that we all have liabilities and risks as

that businesses have the conversation

If theres a breach, you will be

Jersey Fire & Safety Products Opens on Delsea


The Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce celebrated a recently opened
new business with a ribbon cutting ceremony on June 12. Jersey Fire & Safety
Products is located at 646 South Delsea Drive in Vineland. Vice President
Anthony Brooks was operating out of his home until the business grew too big
and demanded a retail space with an adequate showroom to display his large
product offering. Anthony understands that many customers want to see and
touch the product before purchasing and his store now offers that option. Jersey
Fire & Safety Products is the only retail location in southern New Jersey offering
these types of items.

TESTIMONIAL OF THE MONTH


Being new to SERVPRO and Vineland, I thoroughly
enjoy my time networking at GVCC luncheons and Meet
and Greets. I find the Chamber to be educational, fun and
current on topics. They really build a sense of community
among members and beyond. Cash Mob events are a
blast to partake in and a nice economic boost for our local
businesses. We at SERVPRO are very involved with our
community and strongly urge everyone to BUY LOCAL!
