One Blog at a Time
Tales of Blawenburg is a blog about the small village of Blawenburg, located in the southwest section of Montgomery Township, NJ. At first glance, you might think that the village is a sleepy little town where nothing happens, but when you dig into the events throughout its history, you soon discover that there is more going on than meets the eye. There is much to learn as we see Blawenburg’s evolution from a Dutch farming community to a suburban residential village.
