About

James Still was a highly admired nineteenth century African American herbalist who was born in 1812 and died in 1882 as one of South Jersey's richest landowners. He was a self-educated son of slaves. The park service bought this property and the adjacent 10-acre property. Still built the office building in 1845. The local historical society is working to preserve the property. The information herein is from an article by David O'Reilly in the Philadelphia Inquirer, 2/22/13, starting at p. B1.
