Today in History, the 1st railroad charter and how to Lend Nationwide!

Mortgage and Lending with Home State Bank NMLS# 166179

On this day, Feb. 6th in 1815, the state of New Jersey issued the first American railroad charter to John Stevens.  At the age of 27 he was appointed the rank of Captain in Washington’s army during the War of Independence and then became Treasurer of New Jersey.  Stevens turned from law and politics to the study of steam navigation, then in an experimental stage. A man of some wealth, Stevens built the first steamboat to make a successful seagoing trip, from Hoboken to Philadelphia.  After 1810, he turned his attention to the use of steam locomotion for land transportation and 5 years later received the first railroad charter in the United States.
