Living in Dayton, NJ

Dayton was first called “The Cross Roads,” when James Whitlock built the first tavern here in 1750. Early commerce included nurseries, farm implements, tow hay drivers and bricklaying. In 1866, the town’s name was changed to Dayton in honor of William L. Dayton, an attorney for the Freehold and Jamesburg Agricultural Railroad. He helped settle cases regarding locations of the railroad right-of-way.

Today, Dayton and the surrounding areas are home to several large corporations. International Flavors & Fragrances, a major supplier of food flavors and fragrances, is based in Dayton. There are also three area hospitals, and Dayton is perfectly situated between Princeton and New Brunswick, cities that have attracted many high tech companies. When residents need to travel, they choose from several airports within 90 miles, including Mercer County, Philadelphia, Newark International, LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International.
