Penn Brook Club is a swim club located at 221 North Main Street in bucolic Pennington, NJ, Mercer County, NJ. The club opened its doors for the first time in 1957. Two years prior, in this small semi-rural town located in the extreme western portion of the center of the state, a small group of residents hatched the idea of building a local pool as a place for their families to spend time and cool off on hot summer days. Banding together to make their dream of a pool a reality, the core group solicited membership bonds from local residents and family members, bought the land, secured the necessary permits, hired a pool construction company, and helped build the original bath houses and office with their own hands. Following several 100-degree days in July 1957 (the hottest days to hit the Atlantic seaboard since July 1936), the pool developed a waiting list that endures to this day. For more than half a century, the club has played an important role in the lives of residents of all ages. Local historians Lorraine Seabrook and Jean Maze have collected images, memorabilia, and memories from a wide variety of sources. They have interviewed original founding members, contacted former and current members, and researched extensively the time period and locale. Using their professional writing and graphic design skills, Seabrook and Maze detail the history of the pool using never-before-seen archival construction images, original deeds and documents, and member photographs from the 1950s through 2013. They highlight behind-the-scenes stories relating to pool members (some who?ve gone on to achieve greatness) and pepper the book with historical fun facts. This unique scrapbook-style history book explores and celebrates a pool of dreams and serves as a testament to the vision and efforts of its founding members.They highlight behind-the-scenes stories relating to pool members (some who?ve gone on to achieve greatness) and pepper the book with historical fun facts.
