In 1913, a strong spirit of independence, strength of family, and desire for growth prompted a group of central New Jersey settlers to break away from the large town of Piscataway and form the borough of Middlesex. This spirit was perpetuated throughout the 20th century, accelerating the growth of a true American small-town community. People of Middlesex Borough: 1950–2008 celebrates the growth of this very special town in the second half of the 20th century. During this time period, there were major developments: schools were built and expanded and new housing developments and apartment complexes spurred the growth of the population. Parks and sports fields were established, and community services grew while local groups nurtured an already strong sense of communal awareness and responsibility. Family values, patriotism, and neighborliness have long been a part of Middlesex Borough's history, a tradition that continues today.
