 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.

JCP&L AERIAL INSPECTIONS

Please be advised that Vista 1 plans to start performing UV/IR Inspections on the JCP&L transmission lines (115 kV only) beginning Monday, August 17, 2015.  The UR/IR Aerial Inspections in the JCP&L region typically require about 2 to 3 days for completion, depending of course on weather conditions, as well as other scheduling needs.  The helicopter will be flying slowly (20-30 mph) along the lines, and may hover at any time for a closer inspection.  The helicopter scheduled for these patrols is a black and silver Bell 206 with registration (tail) number N321AW.

It should be noted that the contractor has been authorized to patrol the transmission circuits in their entirety (i.e. "breaker-to-breaker"), so patrols on certain lines may therefore extend into neighboring regions.  The flight crew provides information on their daily location to both Transmission Lines Maintenance and the SCC, and the pilot will be in communication with any local airports when in their airspace.
