about

Driving along the Millstone Valley Scenic Byway is a trip back into the history of central New Jersey. The villages of East Millstone, Millstone, Griggstown, Rocky Hill and Kingston offer the visitor a glimpse into the life of the valley as it was and still is. This natural north-south corridor in central New Jersey offers a glimpse into the past where rich layers of history-from the earliest Dutch settlement through skirmishes of the Revolutionary War to the canal era-live on.


The valley's streets and roads of today follow the trails once used by the Lenape Indians who peacefully ceded their claims to the land as the Dutch and English settlers arrived.


The new settlers were eager to clear this fertile land for their farms and villages. These roads also follow the same routes used by General George Washington as he led his weary, freezing soldiers to Morristown after the crossing of the Delaware and the victory at the Battle of Princeton during the American Revolution.


The Millstone Valley Scenic Byway, which is a central feature of the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area, makes history come alive through a charming glimpse of the rural past surviving in the heart of America's most densely populated state.
