When the Founders crafted the U.S. Constitution, they gave the authority to decide who could vote to the states. All but one decided it would be men—white, property-owning men, 21 years old and older.
The one exception was New Jersey. For the first few decades of our new nation, property owning women in New Jersey could vote.

A recent phone call from the Shrewsbury Historical Society (SHS) brought a happy surprise. They had a gift for us: a copy of a map of Shrewsbury, hand-drawn in January 1849—mostly likely created to outline the boundaries of the new municipality, the Township of Ocean, scheduled to split from Shrewsbury a month later.
They have given us both a digital and a full-size paper copy of the original, now framed and ready to be unveiled to the public at a wine and cheese open house at the Woolley House, 7 p.m., Friday, June 21. More.
