Containing almost forty-eight square miles, it remains the largest township in the County. Bounded on the north by the Lamington River and Rockaway Creek; east Somerset County; south, the South Branch of the Raritan River; and west by the old West Jersey Society's line which crosses the Cushetunk Mountains. Early settlement was mainly of Dutch origin.
