Situated in the southeast corner of Mercer County, Robbinsville Township is a diverse, 20.5 square mile community with a population of 15,476 located midway between New York City and Philadelphia. Robbinsville (then known as Washington Township) was formed by an act of the New Jersey Legislature in March, 1859 after a group of independent-minded citizens petitioned to separate from East Windsor Township. One year later, the first town election and annual meeting was held to establish Washington Township with its 1,279 citizens.
The farming community soon became known as a commercial hub for many companies, thanks in large part to the Camden-Amboy railroad. On November 6, 2007, residents approved a measure that changed the town’s name from Washington Township to Robbinsville Township. Robbinsville remains a major player in business as the home of a handful of Fortune 500 companies, including Amazon and McKesson. Its proximity to Trenton, Philadelphia, New York and other major employment centers triggered an development boom due to the township’s substantial warehousing capabilities and easy access to major highways. Top rated restaurants, including two of the nation’s top pizzerias – DeLorenzo’s and Papa’s Tomato Pies - retail shopping in Town Center, the historic town of Windsor, professional lawn and garden centers, wineries and much more can all be found in Robbinsville. In addition, the township has close to 2,000 acres of preserved open space and offers several athletic fields and recreational spaces for public use, including the former Miry Run Golf Course, Community Park, Tantum Park, Blakely Park and the West Town Center Lake Gazebo, which hosts a Father’s Day weekend fishing derby and a summer concert series each summer.
