The Borough of Peapack Gladstone, consisting of two villages joined in 1912, was originally part of Bedminster Township. It is home to slightly more than 2,580 residents and is a leafy green, historic town nestled in a quiet eddy of the beautiful hills of northern Somerset County. It is blessed with historic homes, spectacular vistas and pristine trout streams. It has retained its small town environment and rural atmosphere, continuing its very successful efforts to preserve magnificent open spaces, farms and wooded hills. It is within easy access to New York City by rail and major highways, and is a highly desirable residential community.
