Grover Cleveland’s Barn

Barn on grounds of Grover Cleveland’s birthplace

We were up in Caldwell, NJ this past weekend and stopped by Grover Cleveland’s birthplace. Took a few photos of the grounds including this barn in the backyard. In a related story, his ancestors are still bitter about having a rest stop on the NJ Turnpike named after him.

Rest Stops

I have been spending far too much time on the New Jersey Turnpike recently, driving back and forth to Northern VA where I am currently working. All the rest stops on the NJ Turnpike are named after famous people past and long past. Do you think people like Walt Whitman, James Fenimore Cooper, Grover Cleveland and others ever envisioned that thier names would be on rest stops on the NJ Turnpike?
