Nationwide, Readington Township ranks 87th among the Highest- income places in the United States with a population of at least 10,000.
Created by Royal Charter of King George II, "Reading" Township was formed July 15, 1730 from portions of Amwell Township. It was the first new township created after Hunterdon became a county. The Township was incorporated as Readingtown Township, one of New Jersey's initial group of 104 townships, on February 21, 1798. Portions of the township were annexed by Tewksbury Township in 1832 and 1861. Containing almost forty-eight square miles, it remains the largest township in the County. Readington Township is bounded on the north by the Lamington River and Rockaway Creek; to the east by Somerset County; to the south, the South Branch of the Raritan River; and to the west by the old West Jersey Society's line which crosses the Cushetunk Mountains." - from Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Readington_Township,_New_Jersey.
