Ronald L. Rice Collection

 Collection
Identifier: MG NWK Rice (Main)
Abstract

This small collection of material deals with the Morris Canal in Newark and the Newark City Subway, which was built in the bed of the canal after it shut down. It was donated by Ronald L. Rice, the map archivist of the Canal Society of New Jersey, who has a long-standing interest in the history of the now-defunct Morris Canal. The collection also includes some records from the former Essex County Jail on Lock Street in Newark, which once stood alongside the canal.
