Round Valley hasn’t always been a reservoir – and now you can read the back story in Hunterdon County Historian Stephanie Stevens’ new book, Beneath These Waters. In 70 pages of text with 84 photographs, maps and illustrations, she tells the Valley’s story from its geological formation and Lenape habitat to summer refuge for early Revolutionary Patriots, rich fields farmed by Hunterdon’s oldest families, and the reservoir that took the land for drinking water and recreation.
The book, currently in its 7th printing, is available at the Readington Library, the Hunterdon Co. Planning Board on Rt. 12, the Califon book store, or by mail. Checks made out to Hunterdon County for $10 will have the book mailed to the addressee.
