South River

The township originally called Washington eventually split into East Brunswick, Milltown, Spotswood, and the Borough of South River. The small town of South River has been a borough since 1897 and is lined on the east by the Old Bridge Turnpike and on the west by its namesake, the South River. Those that are interested in the history of the area should certainly check in with the South River Historical & Preservation Society. Founded in 1988, their earliest accomplishment was the purchase of a pair of paintings titled “The Willett Sisters of South River”. The group also had the Old School Baptist Church, now the South River Museum, registered with the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places.
