Milltown History

Members welcome at the Milltown Historical Society!

I found this article - while I was looking for something else - about a brutal murder in front of the Michelin Plant. Interestingly enough, this is the second brutal crime I found that happened at the plant. I know it's not a pleasant piece of Milltown history, but I thought I'd pass it along. Has anyone heard of this crime before?

That is pretty interesting. I had not heard of that before. The paper looks like a good source of info. Are they available on line or did you go the library to look at them?

Thanks,

Kathy

I found the paper here http://newbrunswick.newspaperarchive.com/ through the New Brunswick library web site. It is really something I wish I didn't find.

Here's another murder, this one from 1872. The article contains some familiar Milltown names such as Kuhlthau and Kohlepp.

That's a fascinating story. I never heard it before. How did you happen to find it?

Wow, Edward. Those are some stories. Certainly some dark episodes in our town's history. Thanks for sharing how you found them. What a great resource the online newspaper archive is!
