Judge Appleton

The Inn's namesake, Judge Aldona E. Appleton, was appointed to the New Jersey Bench, in Middlesex County, in July of 1958 and was sworn in on September 3, 1958 and retired in 1970 upon reaching mandatory retirement.  She was a member of the newly created Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court and only the second female judge appointed to the bench in New Jersey history.  Members of the Middlesex County Bar recall her compassionate and caring approach to resolving family disputes during her tenure as Judge.
