South Brunswick History

South Brunswick was formally incorporated on February 21, 1798 as one of New Jersey's initial group of townships. It started out as a rural agricultural township due to the fertile soils and the favorable environmental conditions. Gradually, new transportation routes were constructed, and in 1804, the Straight Turnpike was built. This hastened the commercial and residential growth and development of the region. The impact of American industrial technology has led to an extensive transformation of the town of South Brunswick.
