Millington Trestle

Click to enlarge.

An early picture postcard of the railroad trestle between Millington and Lyons addressed to Mrs. John Boyle in Liberty Corner.  The card has an undivided back which indicates it was printed before 1907, when the post office allowed a divider to separate a message from the address.  Mrs. John Boyle was Lydia Annin Boyle (1827-1907), wife of John F. Boyle.

The trestle, the second in this location along the Gladstone Branch (now NJ Transit), was built in 1892 and was replaced by the current structure in 1928.

  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?
