Throw Back Thursday from County Clerk, Tim Tyler!
Did you know that the Lenni-Lenape Indians were the aboriginal owners of the county?
In October of 1677, a group of people from England arrived on the ship Kent and founded the town of Burlington. The American Indians sold more and more of their lands to the new settlers up until 1801, when there remained less than 100 adult American Indians on the Indian Mills reservation! The Indian Mills reservation was the first American Indian reservation in the United States and the American Indian's last dwelling place in Burlington County.
