"... the lowland areas between the hills were swamplands that ... attracted the Dutch immigrants as they migrated westward. ... with their knowledge of hydrology ... [they] drained the swamplands and, from them, formed muck land: rich black soil, which was excellent for raising such crops as potatoes, celery, lettuce, onions, carrots, beets, etc." 1
