Welcome to Franklin Township, originally a Quaker community and still a solidly rural agricultural district.

In the 19th century, Peach production was paramount and Pittstown was known as the Peach Capital of Hunterdon County. In 1889 there were two million peach trees in Hunterdon County, and nearly one million baskets of peaches were sold. During one day in 1882, 64 carloads were shipped out of Hunterdon on the various railroads.

Pittstown had its own branch of the Lehigh Valley railroad as it carried peaches, ice, lumber, animal feed, milk, and other farm products as well as passengers and coal. To this day, remains of the Pittstown station still stand behind Perricone's Market on the Capoolong Creek Trail.
