Historic Metuchen

Members of the Lennie Lenape of the Delaware Indians are seen as the original residents of the area now known as Metuchen. The first Europeans did not arrive until many years later, in 1665, but soon became interested in Metuchen, with space for trade, location and scenic landscape that made Metuchen ideal to settle, under the leadership of Lord Carteret. In order to promote development of the area and persuade buying land in Central New Jersey, Lord Carteret traveled to New England and promised generous land grants to those who relocated south to New Jersey, making land more affordable and encouraging land settlement and more appealing to build a home. Eventually, the area was settled around 1700, receiving its name from the Indian Chief, Metuching, who lived between 1630 and 1700.

By 1870, Metuchen had developed into a hub of commerce and culture, with everything from Churches and Businesses to schools and even a literary and debating society were established. By the end of the decade, commerce had grown so much that the New Brunswick Directory listed 91 businesses in Metuchen. 
Metuchen was officially incorporated as a borough in 1900 and as technology and industry progressed, so did Metuchen. Metuchen is also often referred to as "The Brainy Borough," due to substantial concentration of professionals, artists, educators and literary figures that have lived in the area, Metuchen stands as a town of cultural and social development.  Metuchen Real Estate
