About Jamesburg, New Jersey

Home to about 5800 people, the small borough of Jamesburg traces its roots to a stand taken against racism before the Civil War. In 1847, James Buckelew, the owner of a local mill, established a school open to "everyone" in response to Monroe Township's refusal to admit an African-American child at school. The school came to be known as Jamesburg School. Eventually, the neighborhood found itself at cross purposes with the rest of Monroe Township and voted to establish itself as a separate borough. To this day, Jamesburg is surrounded by Monroe Township on all sides.
