Montgomery

Montgomery Township is located on 32.48 square miles in the southern portion of Somerset County, New Jersey, 5 miles from Princeton and approximately 50 miles from both Manhattan and Philadelphia.  Montgomery is a thriving community with a rich history, excellent schools, diverse recreation opportunities and a collective commitment to preserving open land and protecting natural resources.  Nearly one-third of the Township is preserved open space or farmland and many historic structures and places have received landmark status.

Montgomery Township's growth has been dramatic over the past two decades.  As of the 2010 census the population was 22,254, an increase of 4,773 (+27.3%) from the 17,481 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 7,869 (+81.9%) from the 9,612 counted in the 1990 Census.

Montgomery Township is part of a bold new initiative by Congressman Rush Holt called Einstein’s Alley. It capitalizes on the area’s intellectual powerhouses including Princeton University, Rutgers University, Princeton Plasma Physics Lab, Institute for Advanced Study, Sarnoff Corporation and other leading research institutes.  The Einstein's Alley initiative is working to make central New Jersey a national leader in attracting and supporting innovative companies.   Similar to California's Silicon Valley or North Carolina's Research Triangle, Einstein's Alley is envisioned as a home to vibrant communities and cutting-edge companies.

The Montgomery Township School District  serves students in kindergarten through 12th grade.  One of the fastest growing school districts in New Jersey, Montgomery Township School District experienced a tripling of enrollment in thirteen years.  It has slowed in recent years due to there being less new home communities developed in the township.
