Mayor John E. McCormac  

WOODBRIDGE: THE BEST TOWN AROUND:  Woodbridge Township, the oldest Township in the State of New Jersey, was chartered on June 1, 1669.  Over its 350 years, Woodbridge Township has had many historic New Jersey firsts –  from the first drinking of British tea in the “Colonies” to the site of the first permanent printing press operated by James Parker in 1751.  

During the Nineteenth century, clay mining and brick manufacturing became the major industry of the Township.  The Township Seal - adopted on November 11, 1885 by the Town Committee - depicts the prominence of the clayand brink industry.  Standing at the “Crossroads of New Jersey,” Woodbridge prospered over the years achieving the designation as an “All American City” home to international corporations, commercial manufacturing and development and a thriving “Buy Local” economy.

Today, ten separate and distinctive communities make up the fabric and fiber of our Township – Avenel, Colonia, Fords, Hopelawn, Iselin, Keasbey, Menlo Park Terrace, Port Reading, Sewaren, and Woodbridge Proper – where we’re proud of our “Quality-of-Life” which is why we are “The Best Town Around.”
