Once summer home to the Lenni Lenape Native Americans, who would migrate to the banks of the Raritan River each year, the area was settled by the English, Scotch and French around 1663. Old Bridge today is a 38.8 square mile Township in Middlesex County, although from 1869 until 1976 it was called Madison Township, but the name was changed to distinguish it from Madison in Morris County. Old Bridge is located 36 miles from New York City.

Old Bridge has evolved from farmland to home developments, with a population of around 60,500. Its Raritan waterfront has always been important, and, since the mid 1990's, a renaissance has turned 47 acres of Raritan Bay waterfront land into Laurence Harbor Park.

The Township's public school system, with a student population of 10,047, ranks as one of the largest suburban school districts in the state. There is one high school with two campuses, two middle schools, and twelve elementary schools.

Some Township attractions are Old Bridge Raceway Park, the beautiful and habitat-varied Cheesequake State Park, as well as Laurence Harbor Beachfront. It is near to the PNC Bank Arts Center, Monmouth Racetrack Park, Englishtown Market, Freehold Raceway Park and Sandy Hook Beach.

Major Highways serving Old Bridge include the Garden State Parkway; State Routes 9, 18, 34, 35; County Routes 516 and 527; and it is 8 minutes from the NJ Turnpike. The Township is served by nearby railroad stations with train service to New York City, Newark, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington. Bus service in the Township is provided by New Jersey Transit, Suburban Transit, and Academy Old Bridge Jitney Service.

Old Bridge has its own website.

Old Bridge Township Public Schools also have a website, as does the Public Library.
