Barrens Visitor's Guide
Far from being
"barren", the Pine Barrens were once bustling with activity
from iron and glass factories, and many villages sprung up as a
result. Some have been preserved and offer a wonderful way to spend
a day learning about the rich history of the Pine Barrens!

Barrens is becoming a popular tourist destination. It offers history,
nature, boating and fishing, swimming, and most of all, peace and
tranquility. It's important to families who live here, whether for
a few years or many generations, that our peace and tranquility be
preserved. Keep in mind that the local lawyer or doctor won't look
any different than his neighbors. Thousand dollar suits aren't what
impresses people of the Pines - taking care of nature and fellow man
is what matters. To that end, it is important for you to know that
as a visitor to our precious Pine Barrens, you should show respect
for the flora and fauna, for the historical buildings or their remains,
and show respect for the "locals". Walk and drive gently.
Treat our Pine Barrens as you would would want a visitor to treat
your own home town.
