Historic Markers

In 2008, the Woodbridge Township Historic Preservation Commission began  placing Historic Markers on the various sites of historical significance in Woodbridge Township.  The program continues to recognize a number of sites each year, according to the funding available. 

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.
