Bordentown is at the northern edge of Burlington County and is considered to be one of the oldest municipalities in the state.

It was founded in 1682 by Quaker Thomas Farnsworth, whom the main street is named after.

The city originally served as a trading post and was an important port city during the American Revolution.

Today, Bordentown is a charming little city with a population of around 3,900 people.

It is located on the Delaware River, offering plenty of scenic views and outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming.

Bordentown is a great place to visit, offering a unique blend of history, culture, and outdoor activities.

It sits right at the intersection of the Delaware River and Crosswicks creek.

You can see the Bordentown Yacht Club if you're driving north on 295 just below the bluff where Thomas Farnworth settled overlooking the two bodies of water.
