Bob Gillis asked:
> Paul, where specifically is Moller's Rock and how do you get there?
Moller's Rock is at the end of Livingston Avenue (my street) in Dover.
To get there, take South Morris Street (that's the road that crosses the
tracks by the station) south up the large hill. Near the top of the
hill, there will be a Citgo gas station. Just past it on the left side
is Livingston Ave. Make a left, follow it up all the way to the top (the
street makes a jog about halfway up, don't let that throw you). The
street will then go down a smaller hill and then hit a hairpin
reverse-turn, with a nice overlook of Dover. Park here. To get to the
rock, you'll see what appears to be a gravel driveway at the end of the
street. This is an access road to get to the woods in back (which is
Green Acres property, so you're free to hike there). Follow the gravel
driveway, and about 1000 feet down, you'll see on the left where the
rock and overview is.
See the attached photos:
"from the ground" - this is looking up towards Moller's Rock
(highlighted by my overly-obvious red arrow!) from the west end of the
"foundation" - this is the infamous concrete foundation that was once
used to hold the burning crosses. Yes, it's still there!
"looking west" - An overview of the passenger yard and town, looking
west. There's a train at the station.
"looking west 2" - A wider angle view of the previous shot. The
industrial building in the center is the former Consolidated Metals
Corp. building, now a light industry.
