Old Bridge Township is a township in Middlesex County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the township had a total population of 65,375, reflecting an increase of 4,919 (+8.1%) from the 60,456 counted in the 2000 Census. The township was originally incorporated as Madison Township by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 2, 1869, from portions of South Amboy Township. In 1975, voters approved changing the township's name to Old Bridge Township by a margin of 7,150 votes to 4,888. The name was changed to avoid confusion with the borough of Madison in Morris County. Old Bridge is a bedroom suburb of New York City located across the Raritan Bay from Staten Island, and it is about 25 miles (40 km) from Manhattan, and about 30 miles (48 km) south of Newark. The first inhabitants of the area known as Old Bridge were the Lenni Lenape Native Americans, known as the Unami, or "people down the river" They migrated to the shore each summer from their hunting grounds in the north. In 1683, the general assembly of East Jersey defined the boundaries of Middlesex and the three other original counties as containing all plantations on both sides of theRaritan River, as far as Cheesequake Harbor to the east, then southwest to the Provincial line, with the southwest line being the border of Monmouth and Middlesex Counties and the Township's southern border. The community of Old Bridge in East Brunswick became known as "the Old Bridge" because of the first bridge built across the river.

History

The first inhabitants of the area known as Old Bridge were the Lenni Lenape Native Americans. When the English gained control from the Dutch in 1664, the state was divided into two provinces, East Jersey and West Jersey. In 1683, the general assembly of East Jersey defined the boundaries of Middlesex County and the three other original counties. The community of Old Bridge in East Brunswick derives its name from the fact that the first bridge spanning the South River was built there. As other bridges were built across the river the first one became known as "the Old Bridge" The Township covers 42 square miles (110 km²) that separated from South Amboy on March 2, 1869, and was originally called Madison Township. In 1975, the name was changed by referendum to the Township ofOld Bridge. The purpose was to establish a single postal designation and ZIP code for the township and to differentiate the township from the Borough of Madison in Morris County. The Township's southern border is the border of Monmouth and Middlesex Counties and the Township's northern border is New Jersey's Raritan River. The township was formed in 1684, and covers an area that now consists of the Townships of Monroe and Old Bridge, the borough of Sayreville and the City of South Amboys. The name Old Bridge was first used to refer to a bridge that was built in the early 1800s on the south side of the Raritans River.
