Bordentown, New Jersey, is located at the confluence of the Delaware River, Blacks Creek, and Crosswicks Creek. The town sits on a high bluff northeast of Philadelphia. Bordentown has always been an accessible crossroads, first by water and train and presently by car and light rail. The community was a railroading town and had a successful boating industry. It eventually transitioned into a factory town, supporting such businesses as Eagle Shirt Factory, Ocean Spray Cranberries, and Springfield Worsted Mills. Motels, drive-ins, and diners sprang up along the highway as halfway stops from northeast to southwest Jersey. The New Jersey Turnpike brought tourists and visitors, who frequented the locally owned restaurants, shops, and galleries. Bordentown showcases the rich industrial and community history of this Burlington County town.
