Victory Parade

Directories 1844

This listing, found in a bound volume in the Trenton Public Library's Trentoniana Room, is believed to be Trenton's first published directory. A notation indicates it appeared in the "The Sheet Anchor of Democracy" (a short-lived Trenton newspaper) on October 14, 1844. Unfortunately, none of the 1844 issues of this newspaper still exist. Please note it is alphabetized only on the first letter of the last name.
