Bedminster is a study in contrasts. Once a sparsely populated rural township of rolling horse farms and grand old estate homes spread out over more than 26 square miles, it has grown to a population of more than 8000 people. The past 30 years have seen the building of thousands of condos, townhomes and single family homes grouped in the eastern corner of the township, near the intersection of Interstates 287 and 78.
Settled in 1749 by King George II of England, Bedminster was primarily home to Dutch, German, Scottish and Irish immigrants. The train line was extended to Bedminster in 1890 when it started to change from a rural farming community to a retreat for wealthy families from New York.
Today, Bedminster's pastures, rolling hills, farmlands and still large tracts of undeveloped land are home to the famous Essex Fox Hunt and Hamilton Farms.
The town of Bedminster offers a mix of housing styles ranging from townhouses priced in the mid $200,000s to estates valued at more than $9,000,000, and appeals to a variety of residents.
Bedminster public schools service K-8. High School students attend Bernards High School, in neighboring Bernardsville.
Terrific commuter location: close to 202,206,287 and 78.
