The first mention of North Brunswick in recorded history appears in 1779; however, the township was first incorporated in February of 1798. For thousands of years, the North Brunswick area was settled by Lenape Native Americans until French and Dutch immigrants purchased the land from the Lenape in 1761. North Brunswick was mentioned in a Middlesex Freeholder Board meeting’s minutes in 1779, nineteen years before the township would be incorporated. North Brunswick was created during the New Jersey Legislature’s Township Act of 1798, which created New Jersey’s initial 104 townships. Later, portions of North Brunswick would be used to created East Brunswick in 1860 and Milltown in 1889. Potions of North Brunswick have been exchanged with other townships in recent years, including Franklin Township, Somerset County, South Brunswick, and New Brunswick.
North Brunswick is located within Middlesex County in the Raritan Valley region. The name “Brunswick” comes from the German city of Braunschweig or the Germanic version of the British royal House of Brunswick. Other sources claim that the township’s namesake comes from King George the II, the Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg. In the 2010 United States Census, over 40,000 people were listed as residents of North Brunswick township. The North Brunswick Township Public Schools serve students between kindergarten and their senior year of high school. The district is made up of six schools and currently has a total enrollment of more than 6,000 students. Two of the district’s schools have been recognized on a national level, and in 1998, the John Adams School was awarded the National Blue Ribbon Award School of Excellence.
