Warren Township is a township in Somerset County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the township's population was 15,311,[7][8][9] reflecting an increase of 1,052 (+7.4%) from the 14,259 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 3,429 (+31.7%) from the 10,830 counted in the 1990 Census.[16]

Warren was originally inhabited by the Lenape Native Americans and was settled in the 1720s by European farmers. As early as 1900, it became a destination for wealthy residents looking to escape nearby New York City.[17] Warren was incorporated as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 5, 1806, from portions of Bernards Township and Bridgewater Township. The south-eastern half of the original township (which was close to a railroad and contained most of the population) was separated off as North Plainfield Township (since renamed to Green Brook Township) on April 2, 1872.[18] Warren is named for Revolutionary War patriot, General Joseph Warren, who was killed at the Battle of Bunker Hill.[17]

In July 2009, CNNMoney.com ranked Warren #6 in its list of "Best Places to Live" in the United States,[19] citing in particular its schools, June carnival (the Lions Club's annual "Expo"), "wide open spaces" (generally 1.5 acres (6,100 m2) per house), 74 "working farms" ("taxed-as-farmland" tracts, but rural, nevertheless), and proximity to New York City.

Geography[edit]

Warren Township is located at 40°38′05″N 74°31′09″W / 40.634588°N 74.519044°W / 40.634588; -74.519044 (40.634588,-74.519044). According to the United States Census Bureau, the township had a total area of 19.644 square miles (50.877 km2), of which, 19.567 square miles (50.678 km2) of it is land and 0.077 square miles (0.199 km2) of it (0.39%) is water.[1][2] The east-west Second Watchung Mountain ridge bisects Warren, with the northern half of the township sloping northward to the Passaic River and Dead River, and the southern half spanning the Washington Valley, between the First and Second Watchung Mountain ridges, through which runs the East Branch of the Middlebrook.

History[edit]

Warren Township is named for the hero of Bunker Hill, Joseph Warren. The town was formed in 1806 from parts of Bernards and Bridgewater Townships.[18] Warren celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2006.

Unincorporated communities within the township include Coontown, Dockwatch Hollow, Mount Bethel, Plainfield Gardens, Round Top, Smalleytown, Springdale, Union Village,[20] and Warrenville,[20] although many of these place names have fallen into disuse.
