- A region of Central New Jersey encompassing the 17-mile-long raised rib known as Sourland Mountain. A place of magnificent beauty and mystery, the site of “the crime of the century,” and a locale that harbored an American revolutionary. Like wider New Jersey, Sourland Mountain beats the drum of past and present. Here, blood was shed and not always innocent blood. Here a honorable leader hoodwinked death. It is an enchanted piece of earth stock full of folktales, where legends come alive against unordinary beauty, rare vegetation and a panoply of natural treasures.
- The inspiration for the The Sourland Mountain Review, created by a group of writers and poets from across New Jersey who draw upon the mystery, tragedy, and history of the Sourlands for inspiration.
