Readington Township Biography

About Readington Township

Over the past few years, Money magazine, CNN.com and NJ Monthly magazine have all singled out Readington Township as a desirable place to live. Driving around the back roads and winding byways that characterize the natural splendor of the area, it’s easy to see why this township is such a great place to call home. Its location midway between New York City and Philadelphia—about 60 miles from either—makes it a close enough commute yet far enough away to enjoy a relaxed quality of life.

Located in eastern Hunterdon County, Readington Township is the county’s largest municipality, measuring about 48 square miles. Created before pre-Revolutionary times, Readington was established by Royal Charter of King George II on July 15, 1730. When New Jersey’s first 104 townships were named in 1798, Readington was among them. Today the township shares its borders with Raritan, Clinton and Tewksbury Townships in Hunterdon County and Branchburg in Somerset County.

Topographically speaking, Readington’s abundance of protected farmland, rivers, streams and the Cushetunk Mountain range make it a naturally scenic place to live. The Lamington River, Rockaway Creek and South Branch of the Raritan River provide picturesque scenery throughout the township.

Since Readington is home to major corporations like Merck, Quick Chek and Chubb Corporation, property tax burdens are eased in comparison to other New Jersey municipalities.
