Long Hill Township
Much of the Township remains undeveloped and within the Great Swamp Wildlife Preserve. In addition, the Long Hill Mountain Ridge traverses the Township and offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. This 12.1 square-mile township was first settled in the early 1700's by Scotch Presbyterians. It was later the site of cigar factories, and silk and grist mills. Today there are few industries in Long Hill Township, and the town is characterized by new subdivisions of colonial, split level and ranch homes built beside stately older homes, some as old as 250 years.
Two major east-west roads connect the township's four population centers; I-78 and Route 22 / Stirling, Millington, Gillette, and Meyersville. Bus service and the New Jersey Transit Railroad offer residents commutation throughout the metropolitan area.
