Pittsgrove

The Township of Pittsgrove is situated in the eastern region of Salem County in New Jersey. The township covers 29,280 acres which include 1.87% water, such as Palatine Lake, Muddy Run, Indian Run, Centerton Pond, Parvin Lake, Rainbow Lake, and Thundgust Lake.

History

In 1769, the township was formed by a Royal charter or a formal grant. It was incorporated as a township in 1798 along with 104 newly established townships within the state. It received its name from the 1st Earl of Chatham, William Pitt. Pitt also served as Great Britain's Prime Minister during the 18th century. He led as a political leader during the victory over France in the Seven Years' War. 

Historical Landmark

The community is home to the Moshe Bayuk House, located on Gershal Avenue. In 1899 the house was built for Moshe Bayuk. Bayuk founded the Alliance Colony, an agricultural colony for Jewish immigrants that fled Russia to escape religious persecution. Although the house is in poor condition, grants have been established for the current owners, the Jewish Federation of Cumberland County, to restore it in hopes of turning it into a heritage center. 

Since 1706, the Ye Olde Centerton Inn has been in operation. It is the oldest in the state and second in the country. The Inn currently serves as a restaurant that offers inside dining as well as catering options. They are known for their seafood selections and their steaks dinners.
