Welcome to the Uplands Reserve.  The name “Uplands” pertains to the geographical area located along the eastern rim of the Hunterdon Plateau.  Totaling 101 acres, Uplands Reserve reaches 500 feet in elevation.  The reserve consists of steep slopes, open fields, and hardwood forests.  The Mine Brook meanders through the property.  The reserve, originally a farm and estate (called “Uplands”), was purchased in 1931 by George Knowles Large, former Hunterdon County Judge (1917-1922).  Mr. Large's notoriety came in 1934, when New Jersey Governor A. Harry Moore appointed him to serve as a Special Assistant Attorney General for the Prosecutor’s Office during the Lindbergh kidnapping and murder case.  The famous trial was held in the Flemington Courthouse from January 2 to February 13, 1935.  To avoid the press during the trial, the Lindberghs were shuttled to several different locations, including Uplands
