In 1926, railroad and electric power tycoon Samuel Insull held a contest to name a station on the Skokie Valley Electric Line that the locals already called the Skokie Swamp. The winning name? Wau Bun, a Potawatomi word meaning "dawn" and also the name of a noted Potawatomi chief from the late 1700s. But the residents of Skokie Swamp hated the name and plotted their revenge. Three years later, as Insull was on a train pulling into the station, he was horrified to discover that vandals had taken it upon themselves to rename the station Hot Bun. Insull and the locals compromised, and the more neutral moniker of Northfield was adopted. The Skokie Valley Electric Line has long since been closed, and popular legend holds that Insull died penniless and alone in Paris. But the town of Northfield has survived and thrived. Once a loose affiliation of farms, Northfield is now a quiet suburb that has enviable schools, beautiful homes, and gorgeous landscapes.

Northfield is a vibrant South Jersey community with farm, seaport, and shipbuilding beginnings. First settled in the late 1700s, it is a place of beautiful homes built by ship captains during the 1700s and 1800s. Northfield portrays the history of the community with stunning photographs and a wealth of fascinating detail. At one time, Northfield grew food for Atlantic City hotels; its office for marriage license applications was in the insane asylum; and its glass factory sold laboratory glassware to Jonas Salk, discoverer of the polio vaccine.

The Northfield Chateau was a landmark in western Massachusetts from the time it was built in 1903 until it was demolished in 1963. A year before the magnificent structure met the wrecking ball the author and several friends spent an unsanctioned evening exploring the 125-room summer home of the Schell family of New York. The memories and images of that evening were captured on a primitive Brownie camera. The photographs and negatives became dog-eared and faded over the years until Sue Melanson resurrected them through her watercolor paintings. Along with her detailed artwork, she has included vivid descriptions of the Chateau as well as background information about its owners and their lifestyle, and even floor plans for the reader to enjoy.

"James Northfield and the art of selling Australia celebrates the career of one of Australia's most notable and influential commercial artists. During the first half of the 20th century Northfield's work played an essential role in creating many of the visual symbols of our national identity, and elaborating upon others. Yet, while some of his most distinctive posters are well known, he has received little public recognition."--Foreword.

Northfield’s mountains, abundant forests, and rich agricultural fields along the Connecticut River sustained native inhabitants for centuries before the English settled in the area known as Squakheag in 1713. Incorporated in 1723, Northfield became a crossroads for travel and commerce, supporting ferries, taverns, mills, and other farm-related businesses. Elegant Federal-style homes crafted in the 1800s by the Stearns brothers still line the iconic Main Street. Northfield native Dwight L. Moody, a famous evangelist, founded area schools and summer conferences. In the late 19th century, the quiet farming town became “heaven on earth” to Moody’s followers, who arrived by the hundreds each summer seeking spiritual renewal and relief from the cities. The railroad brought visitors to the first American youth hostel and to the popular Northfield Inn and Chateau, where many permanent residents found employment. Around Northfield, Queen Anne–style homes provided lodging for boarders, while tearooms, milliners, liveries, and grocers served visitors. Today, Northfield’s vitality and spirit endures, forged by education, hard work, civic engagement, and perseverance.
