Beginnings [1]

Ellistown, a hamlet on the Burlington County / Monmouth border settled by Friends, was early known as Gibbstown. In 1884 it contained some half dozen dwellings. A Friends meeting house in its vicinity was an old school-house which was used by the Friends of Arneytown. A blacksmith shop dated back over 50 years, and a store was started by John Hodgson about 1838.
