Historic Tour Brochures

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.
