Bridgewater Township is located in central Somerset County, approximately 35 miles west of New York City. Interstate Highways 78 and 287 and State Highways 22, 28, 202 and 206 are major thoroughfares in the Township. The Township shares borders with Bedminster, Bernards and Warren to the north, Green Brook and Middlesex to the east, Bound Brook, Franklin, Hillsborough, Manville, Somerville and Raritan to the south, and Branchburg to the west.
The thirty-three square mile area which is now the Township of Bridgewater was originally purchased from a local Indian tribe. Chartered by King George II of England in 1749, and incorporated in 1899, Bridgewater is a modern suburban municipality with a balance of residential and commercial uses. In the early years, Bridgewater was known as a farming town. What is now Somerville, Raritan, Bound Brook, parts of Branchburg and Warren were once part of Bridgewater Township until they broke away years after the chartering.
