Hamilton Township may be New Jersey’s 9th biggest by population, but we are conveniently scattered over the territory of forty square miles with more than 64 public parks and playgrounds and miles of protected open area, settled amidst wonderful neighbors that generations of Hamilton households proceed to call home.
Located in central New Jersey, Hamilton enjoys a prime location that is under an hour’s drive of New York City and Philadelphia. We are also near destinations such as Six Flag Great Adventure, downtown Princeton and the historic State Capital, Trenton.
Hamilton Township is very well-known for its parks, recreation and numerous historic sites and yearly community events, such as the annual Azalea Festival, Independence Day Concert, SeptemberFest, and Winter Wonderland. Several athletic leagues offer countless recreational opportunities for all groups of age. Additionally, Hamilton Township offers its residents a nationally renowned Senior Center which holds celebrations, dinner dances, classes, and more throughout the year. Beyond entertainment, we house the nationally acclaimed Grounds For Sculpture, which brings in more than 150,000 visitors every year.
Hamilton also enjoys a vibrant and bustling local economy, with small retail shops as well as large shopping centers, along with fabulous dining for every taste and pocket and plans for a budding family-friendly entertainment area.
In 1954, Helen Almy West recorded the earliest days of our town when she authored “A History of Hamilton Township.” Copies of the 120 page hardbound book are rare. The Hamilton Library is the probably the best place to find one. Two decades later, a group of locals created the Hamilton Historical Association and representatives from the Association took the task of writing a 36-page brochure renewing Ms. West’s work. They dubbed it “Old Nottingham.”
We invite you to visit our Hamilton Library so that you might experience a comprehensive tour of our colorful past. The summary of these two historic offerings is furnished as an incentive to anybody interested in our unique beginnings. You should find that an understanding of our origins will provide a more clear understanding of our current conditions and ones we can look forward to in the next millennium.
