In the late 20th Century Montgomery Township evolved into a primarily residential community, along with industrial zones and corporate office properties while retaining large tracts of open spaces and “Green Acres.” There are several hamlets within the Township: Belle Mead, Blawenburg, Dutchtown, Harlingen, Rocky Hill, Skillman and Zion. Rocky Hill, which was the first village in the Township, is now a separately incorporated borough, whose children attend Montgomery Township schools.
The Township is in close proximity to the academic communities of Princeton University, Rutgers University, Rider University, The College of New Jersey and several community colleges.
The Township is also the proud home of many of the farms, dwellings and houses that were built around the 1800s. The Montgomery Center for the Arts is located in one of these houses called ‘The 1860 House’ which was constructed in the late Greek Revival style. Of particular importance are the rustic stone bridges that exist in the area.
The residents continue to take pride in its rural hospitality, picturesque charm, rich history, peaceful serenity and excellent school system.
