Woodbridge, New Jersey Town Hall

Woodbridge

was settled in 1664, making it the oldest original township in New Jersey. It was named after the Reverend John Woodbridge, a business associate of Benjamin Franklin, who established a permanent printing house there and published "The New American Magazine" - the second magazine of its kind on the new continent.

At 27 square miles, the Township is one of the largest in New Jersey, and is home to about 100,000 residents, making it the 5th largest municipality in New Jersey, the center of activity for Central Jersey. The Township consists of 10 communities: Avenel, Colonia, Fords, Hopelawn, Iselin, Keasbey, Menlo Park Terrace, Port Reading, Sewaren, and Woodbridge proper. It has earned an All America City Award.

There are 16 elementary schools in the Woodbridge Township School District, with about 6,000 students in grades K through 5. The five middle schools house 3,300 students for grades 6-8. The high schools have 4100 students in grades 9-12, with more than 150 courses offered in Advanced Placement, college preparatory, business, vocational and cooperative work/study programs. The Woodbridge Township Board of Education also sponsors an After School Child Care program for public elementary school age children.

The Barron Arts Center, a beautiful Richardson Revival style building on Rahway Avenue, was built in 1877 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is setting to a wide variety of arts activities, with programming to the public free of charge. The Township also has four branches of its large library.

For seniors, the Township boasts the Evergreen Senior Center, providing a wide range of services to Woodbridge residents.

A commuter's dream spot, there is high speed train service provided at Woodbridge Metropark, with Amtrak services to New York, Boston, Philadelphia and many other points and NJ Transit service through the Northeast Corridor.
