Bridgewater Township was formed by Royal Charter by King George II of England on April 4, 1749. The township was also the scene of two American military encampments during the Revolutionary War. The first was in 1777 and lasted 35 days and the second was in 1778-79 when Washington and his troops made winter camp at what today is called the Middlebrook Encampment. Formerly 55 square miles, Bridgewater originally covered parts of Warren, Branchburg and all of what is now Somerville, Bound Brook and Raritan. --- A charter from King George II created Bridgewater on April 4, 1749. This grant included Branchburg, Bound Brook and Raritan, and parts of Warren and Green Brook. The description of the northern boundary is still being reinterpreted today. ---

Money Magazine ranks Bridgewater 15th among 26 Eastern U.S. towns with populations under 100,000. Major reasons were the very high ranking for low crime (top 5 percent) and student-teacher ratios (top 3 percent).
But where does Money Magazine rank Bridgewater on environmental issues? In the lower 50 percent. Most telling is Bridgewater's rank in the cost of automobile insurance, the bottom 5 percent.
