 Welcome To Hampton

Hampton Borough, on the banks of the Musconetcong River, has changed little since it was first settled in 1800.  In 1880, the town consisted of a store, hotel, cabinet manufacturer, blacksmith, wheelwright shop, grist mill, school house and about 25 dwellings. Hampton was once known as "Junction" because the Central Railroad of New Jersey and the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad crossed through here.

What is now Hampton was originally incorporated as Junction Borough on February 20, 1895, from portions of both Lebanon Township and Bethlehem Township.  The name was changed to Hampton Borough as of February 11, 1909, by resolution of the Borough Council.  And in 1931, additional territory was annexed from both Glen Gardner and Bethlehem Township.
