Inscription. The many springs flowing here attracted early settlers by the 1750's, and several mills were built along the Pohatcong Creek (some still stand).

In 1825, the Inn At Springtown became a stagecoach stop on the Trenton-Easton Road.

In 1881, the newly named Township of Pohatcong was directed by the New Jersey Legislature to hold its first committee meeting here.
