Our Mission: “To inform,
Woodbridge Township, New Jersey
Beginning in 2009, the Historic
Preservation Commission, with a grant from the Middlesex County Cultural and Heritage Commission, began a program of developing brochures which outline the historic sites in Woodbridge. Beginning with Woodbridge proper, the Commission has completed three tours and is currently in the process of the fourth. Tour brochures are available in a variety of locations throughout the township and may be viewed or downloaded on this site.
Meetings will begin at 7:00 p.m. and continue until adjournment.
