About Warren Township
One of the most attractive communities in New Jersey, Warren Township was voted in 2013 Number 1 Best Place to Live in Central New Jersey and Number 2 in the State of New Jersey. Originally, Warren Township was inhabited by the Lenape Indians. European farmers settled the territory in the early 1700s, and in 1806 Warren was carved from part of surrounding towns and incorporated. The town was named after General Joseph Warren who was a hero of the Battle of Bunker Hill during the American Revolution.
Warren Township has 19.3 square miles. It is nestled in the Watchung Mountains. Once described as “the greenest place in New Jersey”, Warren Township residents and elected officials are working to keep its rural character and charm while recognizing that there will be growth due to the town’s beauty, favorable property taxes, and strategic location.
