Occupying only 1.6 square miles in central New Jersey, the town of Milltown has seen the surrounding area change from rolling farmland into a home from industry, commerce, business and suburban developments. In one hundred years, the town has shared the changes that have come to Middlesex County and yet still maintained that old-fashioned, small-town feeling. Those who have spent their lives here and those who have come to adopt Milltown as their own will find in this book snapshots which together take us on a journey through Milltown's history, from the days of Bergen's Mill and trolley cars, through the arrival and departure of the Michelin Tire Company, and all the way up to the 1960s. The human side of town's rich and diverse history is also well documented, with images of the famous "Milltown tranquilizers," the diner, and the old swimming hole.
