Located in central New Jersey's Middlesex County,

Metuchen was historically known for the stellar

collection of literary, artistic, and industrial talent who resided here, and earned the nickname the "Brainy Boro." Since its beginnings as a village within Raritan township, Metuchen has matured from its roots as a commercial center for area farmers into a desirable suburban community. Metuchen compiles photographs from the rich collections of the Metuchen-Edison Historical Society, including some of the hundreds of photographs taken in the early years of the twentieth century by resident J. Lloyd Grimstead. The pages of Metuchen invite you to shop the businesses along Main Street, wait for the morning train with the commuters, and tour the gracious homes along Graham and Lake Avenues. In sharp, illustrative detail, you can visit historic

Borough Hall and the library, and meet or reacquaint

yourself with some of the people who made Metuchen

their home.
