Ewing History

The first known inhabitants in the area were the Lenni-Lenape Native Americans. For these early inhabitants, the numerous lakes and creeks served as a great natural resource for fishing, hunting, farming, and pottery-making. European colonists arrived in the region in 1699, when it was a part of Hopewell Township. Ewing later became part of the City of Trenton in 1719, and it remained that way until 1834, when its name was changed to Ewing Township. It was named in honor of Charles Ewing, the former Chief Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court. The township of Ewing was officially incorporated on February 22, 1834.
