|Boston Tea Party in progress|
Even in 1774, the Cohansey River was one of the few deep water ports between the Atlantic Ocean and Philadelphia, and the Brits had used it to sneak a load of tea ashore. The local patriots were having none of that, and burned the lot on December 22th, 1774, a year after the Boston Tea Party.
This tea burning is commemorated by a pretty grand monument in the center of this very small town.

It doesn't seem like Greenwich has grown much since the 1700s. The main street, called "Ye Greate Street", in the tradition of all things olde, is lined with beautiful, well preserved, colonial-era homes. Adorned with satelite dishes, of course.
