Overview of Bordentown

Bordentown is located on the border of New Jersey and Pennsylvania where the Delaware River separates the two. With only about 400 residents who live and work in Bordentown, the city of 3,924 is largely a bedroom community – albeit a beautifully preserved historic enclave - of nearby Trenton, NJ, and Philadelphia, PA, which is only 25 miles away. People looking for housing here have a large choice of apartments in Bordentown as about half of the residences are renter-occupied.

Living in Bordentown, NJ

Settled in the late 1600s, Bordentown became the hub of a transportation system that linked Philadelphia and New York by resident Joseph Borden, the city's namesake, by the mid-1700s. It was a hotbed of patriotic fervor during colonial times and the Revolutionary War. Many early patriots, included Thomas Paine, lived in or near Bordentown. Today, the city's 19th century-style downtown district is on the National Register of Historic Places.

An interesting sidelight to Bordentown history is the residence of Joseph Bonaparte, exiled king of Naples and Spain and brother to Napoleon I of France. He lived there for nearly two decades in the early 1800s, and often entertained dignitaries in his mansion on the river bluff.

Bordentown, Work and Study

Bordentown is within 15 miles of several colleges and community colleges, including Princeton University, Rider University and the College of New Jersey. It also is home to an Empire School, part of a national chain of hair styling schools.

Among Bordentown apartments and homes, nearly half are considered "family households," and there are many community and school activities for children and adults. The Bordentown Regional School District serves children from the city as well as surrounding communities in Burlington County, including the adjacent Bordentown Township, which is a separate suburban tract with 16,000 residents.

The downtown area is the location of many professional and family services, including banks, law offices, photography studios, medical services and repair shops. Professional services and retail are the leading category of businesses in Bordentown, followed by a smaller number of warehousing and light manufacturing companies.

For nearly 70 years, the Ocean Spray Cranberries juice manufacturing plant in Bordentown has been the largest employer of about 250 people. The company has announced it will close the plant in 2013 and move to a newer facility in Pennsylvania.
