Propane New Jersey

Propane Company Watchung New Jersey

About 29 miles west of New York City is Watchung, a borough in Somerset County, New Jersey that is home to around 5,500 people. George Washington surveyed the British troops in Perth Amboy, 20 miles away, from the first ridge of the Watchung Mountains. The eastern edge of these ridges reaches the Oranges in the direction of Newark. Watchung, in the 1900s, was a semi-rural small community of about 3,200 people in comparison with the relatively larger and more urban communities of Plainfield and Somerville. The first mayor of the town was Henry Baldwin Macdonald, who served from 1926 to 1928. Even as late as the 1960s, it was common for residents to know one another by name, with few moving in or out of the town. The name "Washingtonville" was used in early times but was rejected as the name for the area by the United States Postal Service, which felt that the state already had too many places named Washington. Instead, the borough was named after the Watchung Lenni-Lenape tribe that once lived in the area. The Borough of Watchung was organized on April 20, 1926, and covers an area of approximately 6.2 square miles. Watchung was settled in the early eighteenth century and grew slowly until recent years. Located within the Raritan Valley region, today the borough is one of the state's highest-income communities.
