Ewing Township was settled by Thomas Hutchinson in 1679. Trenton (Ewing) Township was formed by an Act of the New Jersey State Legislature in 1834, and the name was changed from Trenton Township to Ewing in honor of Charles Ewing, late Chief Justice of New Jersey. The earliest known inhabitants of the area were the Lenni Lenape Indians who hunted and fished along the banks of the Delaware River, and the Township's many creeks that transect the land. Ewing Township is a diversified community of residents with an economy strongly rooted in government, commercial development and education.
