DidjanoÖ.. that Robbinsville is dying?
Robbinsville? What? Where
is Robbinsville? You wonít find it on a map, but it does exist or did. To some
it has fond memories and good times. Itís an area that has some what of a
mystique about it. It was located on the southern outskirts of
Robbinsville was that area at the cross roads of Dye Mill
Rd and S. Market or
The night club is now being used by a trucking firm and
most of the rental houses are abandoned. The few that are still being used are
in the back side of the property and almost hidden from view from the highway,
although a duplex is still right on the corner of Dye Mill & 25A.
One of the mischievous deeds perpetrated by the kids of
this community was to find a car at the bar that wasnít locked and proceed to
push it to another section of the property. You can see where an inebriated
person or persons would soon become sobered when they couldnít find their car
right away. So, the kids were doing a good thing, right? They kept a drunk of
the road for a while and by the time they found the car they had sobered up a
little more. At any rate the kids thought it was a great prank, and so do I.
The kids in this neighborhood didnít lack for
entertainment. Between playing basketball, baseball or stickball and other games
kids make up to entertain them selves, they developed a close relationship, not
unlike any other neighborhood where a lot of kids are brought together due to no
circumstance of their own. Iím sure you have fond memories of your childhood
and the neighborhood where you grew up. If youíre so inclined, we would like
to hear about your neighborhood experiences.
