Trip Planner USA  /  New Jersey  /  Metuchen
Metuchen is a borough in Middlesex County, New Jersey, United States, which is northeast of New Brunswick, miles southwest of Newark, southwest of Jersey City, and southwest of Manhattan, all part of the New York metropolitan area. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 13,574, reflecting an increase of 734 from the 12,840 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 36 from the 12,804 counted in the 1990 Census.Metuchen was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 20, 1900, from portions of Raritan Township .HistoryUntil 1870, what is now Metuchen was part of Woodbridge Township. Because the settlers in the western part of the township were so far removed from the village of Woodbridge, they early developed a separate identity. The name "Metuchen" first appeared in 1688/1689, and its name was derived from the name of a Native American chief, known as Matouchin. In 1701, an overseer of roads was appointed for "Metuchen district". In 1705, Main Street was laid out at the same time as the road from Metuchen to Woodbridge, which one source calls a "reworking of the original road".
