About Bridgewater Township

Are you looking for a prime location in central New Jersey? Close proximity to conveniences ranging from shopping and dining to transportation and recreation? Established suburban neighborhoods where well-kept homes are set along leafy tree-lined streets? If so, Bridgewater Township is a top choice for many who choose to live in Somerset County.

This 33-square mile municipality has a population of about 44,000 residents, making it the second most populous in the county after Franklin Township. Noted for being one of the state’s first 104 townships, it was incorporated in 1749. Early links to British settlers are evidenced from origins of the township’s name: Bridgwater in Somerset, England.

Community Life

While Bridgewater was mostly a rural farming community until the 1970s, today it houses a variety of top corporations including MetLife, Sanofi-Adventis, Philips-Van Heusen and Johnson & Johnson. In contrast, there are many established residential enclaves throughout the township, as well as 3,600 acres of parkland. Recreational options include taking in a Somerset Patriots game at the TD Bank Ballpark. Shoppers have long been drawn to the extensive offerings at the Bridgewater Commons Mall and the major chain stores surrounding it.
