Summary

Piscataway, one of New Jersey's oldest settlements, was organized in the 1660s. Historically, the area's appeal has come from its rich agricultural land and from its location as a port on the Raritan River. During the twentieth century, Piscataway transformed its rustic appeal into a modern suburb.More than two hundred images in Piscataway Township reveal the agrarian past and later developments in this historic community. Images of the commercial center of New Market, historic properties such as the Low and Isaac Onderdonk Houses, and local residents engaged in activities of the township's bygone days make up part of the history presented in this delightful book. Piscataway Township also includes the former great port of Raritan Landing, one of New Jersey's most significant archaeological sites.
