 The
 case
 study
 area
 that
 I
 will
 be
 discussing
 in
 my
 synopsis
 will
 be
 the
 historical
 district
of
Connecticut
Farms
located
in
the
county
of
Union
in
Union,
New
Jersey.

In
 the
 beginning
 of
 the
 15th
 and
 into
 the
 17th
 Century
 the
 Dutch
 and
 English
 were
 interested
in
the
 Union
 area.

The
allure
for
this
area
is
still
present
in
this
day
and
 age
 as
 Union
 was
 voted
 the
 75th
 best
 place
 to
 live
 in
 the
 United
 States.
 
 The
 neighborhood
of
Union
consists
of
very
diverse
cultural
and
historical
monuments
 to
people
of
all
races.


Union
According
to
the
2000
Census
results,
Union
Township
 is
home
to
about
54,405
people
and
is
in
one
of
the
most
densely
populated
counties
 in
New
Jersey.


 
 The
 First
 Presbyterian
 Congregation
 of
 Connecticut
 Farms
 also
 known
 as
 Connecticut
Farms
is
considered
a
national
monument
and
was
added
to
the
list
of
 historical
monuments
in
1970.

As
per
the
National
Website:
 
 Historic Significance: Architecture/Engineering, Event Architect, builder, or engineer: Unknown Architectural Style: No Style Listed Area of Significance: Social History, Architecture Period of Significance: 1750-1799, 1800-1824 Owner: Private Historic Function: Religion Historic Sub-function: Religious Structure Current Function: Religion Current Sub-function: Religious Structure 
The
reason
why
I
chose
Union
as
my
case
study
area
is
because
it
is
rich
in
history
 and
the
community
is
vibrant
and
reflective
of
all
races.

In
addition,
Union
is
also
 the
town
where
I
spent
the
majority
of
my
life.


It’s
historical
richness
and
cultural
 complexity
is
what
allures
me
to
my
town
and
furthermore
gives
me
a
great
sense
of
 pride
to
talk
about
the
grandeur
that
this
small
town
has
to
offer.
