Somerset County, NJ Local Information Somerset County, NJ Seal

Somerset County, NJ is the wealthiest county in New Jersey by per capita income ($47,067 as of the 2010 Census) and the ninth wealthiest in the entire United States.  With a population of 323,444, the median household income in Somerset County is $97,440, compared to $69,811 for the rest of the state.

One of America’s oldest counties, Somerset County was established from parts of Middlesex County in 1688 and named for the English county of Somerset.  It was primarily an agricultural county until the 1960s, when suburban communities began to develop, largely due to the growth of the pharmaceutical and technology industries in the area.

This transformation can also be attributed to an influx of New York City commuters. NJ Transit’s Raritan Valley Line and Gladstone Branch offer rail service, while a number of local and regional bus services operate in Somerset County.  Residents are also served by Ridewise, a sustainable travel alternative, along with county shuttles (SCOOT, DASH and CAT) and Para-Transit services for seniors and persons with disabilities.

Interstates 78 and 287 connect Somerset County to New York City and Pennsylvania.  Other major roadways include State Highways 22, 27, 28, 202 and 206.  Somerset County is also home to three general aviation airports. Central Jersey Regional Airport and Princeton Airport focus on sightseeing rides and instruction, and Somerset Airport specializes in charters and corporate travel.

Somerset County students are served by 12 public high schools and 10 private high schools in 17 school districts.  Somerset Hills Learning Institute specializes in educating children with autism.  Raritan Valley Community College, Somerset Christian College and Somerset County Technology Institute offer a wide array of college and adult education programs.

12,552 acres of county parkland are a hallmark of Somerset County, from the rose gardens of Colonial Park, to the hiking and biking trails of Washington Valley Park and the Sourland Mountain Preserve, to the horseback trails of Lord Stirling Park.

Liberty Village Premium Outlets in Flemington and Bridgewater Commons in Bridgewater are two popular shopping destinations, and you’ll find plenty of local shopping flavor in Somerset County’s many quaint downtown areas.  The Somerset County Business Partnership is a great resource for business owners and job seekers.
