Great Estates of Ringwood

Great Estates of Ringwood
140 Page Coffee Table Book

Award-winning photographer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Ken Carroll teamed with former Ringwood, New Jersey historian Elbertus Prol to create an elegant, 140-page coffee table style book Great Estates of Ringwood. Large images and historical facts offer a fascinating explanation of life in Ringwood’s grand manors.

One hundred percent (100%) of the proceeds will be donated to local charities, and the Ringwood Historical Society to help them with their work in maintaining the town’s historical sites.
