About Bridgeton

Bridgeton mingles its New England atmosphere and the architecture of past centuries with the advancements and automation of the present. Quakers settled this area in the late 1600s and within 50 years constructed the bridge across Cohansey Creek that would lend the town its name.

The 19th century saw the growth of Bridgeton, by then the seat of Cumberland County, and the establishment of a woolen mill, a nail factory and an ironworks. As the residents prospered, they constructed the many Colonial, Federal and Victorian buildings that remain. Reminders of early Bridgeton still crowd its historic district, which has more than 2,200 period houses and commercial buildings.
