A visit to Flemington, New Jersey, will seem much like passing through a doorway to another, more peaceful and beautiful time.
Located in picturesque Hunterdon County and serving as its county seat, Flemington is a quaint county borough known for its old world charm. Originally the territory of Lenni Lenape Native Americans, the area was acquired in 1712 as part of a land parcel by William Penn and Daniel Coxe and quickly earned a reputation as a fertile and productive agricultural community.
The sentimental charm of this beautiful little town has been well preserved throughout the years, as you still can visit Union Hotel, Fleming Castle, the Greek-inspired Doric House, Hunterdon County Courthouse, and other historic sites. You can stay at the Victorian-inspired Main Street Manor Bed & Breakfast—an establishment particularly known for its annual Christmas Tour. You can see Northlandz, the world’s largest miniature railroad exhibit, ride an old-fashioned steam train at the Raritan River Railway, and walk through the Flemington Castle Museum.
Enjoy a hot air balloon ride, play a round of golf, skate the day away at an ice rink, and enjoy other sports at the Diamond Center—considered the largest amateur sports complex in the nation. Shop at the Liberty Village Premium Outlets, a shopping center that boasts 40 stores.
So there’s really no questioning the fact that Flemington is a great place to visit. Yet would one truly want to live there? The answer is a resounding yes, when one considers the fact that the same classic, Victorian-style architecture that graces the community’s historical buildings also serves to define the style of its residential homes.
In addition, the community offers a strong school system, as well as abundant employment opportunities in industries that include medical, financial, executive, technical, and hospitality. And if you do have to commute your way to work, this classic community comes complete with an ultra-modern transit system and easy access to a bustling network of roads and highways.
