Settlement of what was variously known as Bantatown, Pleasureville, and North Pleasureville begin in 1784 when Dutch Huguenot families moved from Mercer county. The name Bantatown came from settler Abraham Banta. The source of the name Pleasureville is not known but legend has it that at one time Pleasureville harbored a bordello, hence the name... Pleasureville. The site of the bordello is rumored to be the old Pleasureville Hotel [now an apartment building]. The Pleasureville post office opened in 1828. In 1858 a railroad passed south of the original town and a new town grew around the station. In 1874 the Pleasureville post office moved to the new site and in 1879 a North Pleasureville post office opened at the original site. The two towns merged in 1962 and the two parts are sometimes called North Town and South Town.

What is foreclosure law?

Foreclosure is the cutting off or termination of a right to property to compel payment of a mortgage or other debt secured by a lien. As to real property, like a house or land, foreclosure is started because of non-payment of the debt and leads to the selling of the property to which the mortgage or lien is attached in order to satisfy that debt. Lawyers who assist with foreclosure issues help struggling homeowners consider their options -- both foreclosure and foreclosure alternatives -- and determine the best course of action. Foreclosure alternatives may include loan modification, short sale, forbearance, reinstatement, and repayment plans.
