NOT EVERY TOWN HAS ITS OWN BOOK

Did you know that both Carlton Street and Carlton Ball Fields are named after Carlton Rouh, a Lindenwold native who was awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor, two Purple Hearts and a Silver Star between 1942 and 1944 for his service in the USMCR. Here he is with President Truman.

Did you also know that you can read about Carlton and all of the History of Lindenwold in our very own, namesake book. Not every town has a book written about it. Published in 1979, The History of Lindenwold was written by life-long Lindenwold resident, Charles Shaylor and covers hundreds of stories about Lindenwold and its people. 

Want your own copy of The History of Lindenwold? Borough Hall has them available for $15.

Currently, the Lindenwold Public Library shows 5 of 6 copies available. Here are the call numbers. Or if you need help finding it, ask Library Supervisor and Mayor's wife, Mrs. Brenda Roach. Click here to check its current status.
