George Ballentine

George Ballentine (1845-1912) of Peapack is listed as a farmer on the 1900 and 1910 U.S. censuses but also had a business selling lime and fencing.  Lime was used by farmers as a fertilizer and was produced in great quantity in Peapack as evidenced by the Moses Craig Lime Kilns on Main Street.  Charles P. Bird (1856-1933), the customer, was a farmer at Liberty Corner.

  2. Not sure where you got your information about "picnic" lots, but a 25' x 100' lot was a standard size…

  3. The trust bought the open land (athletic fields and woodland). The site of the buildings was sold to a developer.

  4. I hope the open space will still be preserved. Did the trust own the mansion when it was demolished?
