Propane Services Zarephath New Jersey

Zarephath is a small unincorporated community and census-designated place located in the Franklin Township in Somerset County, New Jersey. Zarephath has a total area of 0.445 square miles, with a population of a little less than 50. The site was originally a farm owned by Peter Workman Garretson in Franklin Township. He married Caroline Van Neste Field, who became a follower of Alma Bridwell White, then based in Denver, Colorado. Field donated the land to the church after meeting her. The church assumed all debts associated with the mortgage on the property, which was considerable. It was agreed the church would take title to the land upon repayment of the mortgage. The community is named after Zarephath, the place in the Bible where the "widow woman" sustained the prophet Elijah, because White saw a parallel with relocation to a farm and the story of Elijah and a widow. The Zarephath Bible Institute was founded in 1908 as a "training school for missionaries, preachers, and teachers." It was later renamed the Zarephath Bible Seminary. Tropical Storm Doria in 1971 and Hurricane Floyd in September 1999 brought record floods to the areas adjacent to the Millstone River, which is located along one edge of the Zarephath campus. Despite maintaining a twelve-foot-high flood levee, Zarephath was inundated with water from the nearby river and Delaware and Raritan canal. Hurricane Irene destroyed much of the campus again in late August 2011 According to the Somerset Christian College website, authorities have ordered the Zarephath Campus to be abandoned because of its location in the floodplain.
