Readington Township Historic Districts

Readington Township rich history begins with the early settlement patterns of the Dutch, English, and Germans who came to farm the rich soil of the Raritan Valley during the 18th c. These settlers established the foundations of the first villages and hamlets in Readington Township. During the 19th c, the development of the railroad lines in the region created additional villages. Today, these villages and hamlets provide us with our sense of place and are important in the history of the township, state, and nation.
