Living in Flemington, NJ
Flemington received its name from Samuel Fleming, who purchased part of the land in 1756. In Flemington's early years, it was primarily an agricultural community due to its particularly fertile farmland. This led to the development of industries in the area that were dependent on farm products.
The construction of Liberty Village and Turntable Junction created outlet shopping complexes that helped to transform Flemington into a major factory outlet center. Today, the town still boasts a quaint country atmosphere with many diverse offerings, including both small, family-owned businesses and large industrial enterprises, arts and crafts shows and stock car racing. According to the borough website, Flemington is a town that loves families - and the families love it back. It prides itself on offering residents top-notch schools, a dedicated police force, well-trained fire department and community services that cater to its diverse population.
