About Warren Township
In 2009, CNN-Money.com ranked Warren #6 out of the 100 Best Small Towns in America, noting their exceptional schools, family-oriented community events and open spaces as the outstanding criteria. Measuring about 19 square miles, the township is approximately 35 miles from Manhattan in Somerset County. With a population of around 16,000 residents, this semi-rural location is conveniently located near Routes 22, 78, 202 and 287.

Settled in the 1720s, Warren is named for Revolutionary War hero Major General Joseph Warren who died at the Battle of Bunker Hill. The township was formally established in 1806 when it separated from parts of Bernards and Bridgewater Townships. Farming, cattle raising and lumber were top industries until the middle of the 20th century, when the township became more residential in nature. Nevertheless, there are still scores of working farms in Warren today.
