Bridgeton NJ

Seabrook Farms

Family-owned frozen vegetable company, still there. Many Japanese-Americans were recruited to work there when the WWII internment camps were closed, residing in company housing  with other immigrant groups & African-Americans.  I have read some unpleasant accounts of life in  the Seabrook company town.
Seabrook has a museum & cultural center
