Propane Flagtown New Jersey

Flagtown is an unincorporated community located within the Hillsborough Township in Somerset County, New Jersey. A popular misconception states that Flagtown derived its name from the practice of displaying a flag at the station to signal an oncoming train to stop for passengers. The problem with that is Flagtown was named long before any trains rolled through the town. Originally spelled "Flaggtown", the community was named after the 18th century Hillsborough resident and landowner Jacob Flagg. Around 1800, Flagg owned property and a tavern near where the YMCA is located today, at the corner of South Branch Road and East Mountain Road. Two centuries ago, this was the intersection of the original Amwell Road and the road to South Branch. During election time the tavern served as a voting place. The Lehigh Valley Railroad and the South Branch of the Jersey Central each had stations near Flaggtown. Since the tracks did not pass through Flaggtown, the station area was named Flaggtown Station. The first school was built there about 1725 on a knoll near the railroad station and it is said that William Parrish taught there. The building was replaced in 1795, painted red and white casings to the doors and windows and called, “The Old Red School House.”
