What to do...

Greenwich Township was first formed as a precinct on January 19, 1748, and was incorporated as one of New Jersey's initial 104 townships by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 21, 1798. Portions of Hopewell Township and Stow Creek Township were annexed in 1845.

On December 22, 1774, Greenwich acquired lasting fame as the scene of destruction of a cargo of tea which had been unloaded from the hold of the brigantine "Greyhound" whose captain feared to proceed to Philadelphia. Before the tea could be smuggled overland to Philadelphia as had been planned, it was destroyed on Market Square by a group of young patriots disguised as Indians who danced merrily around a bonfire fed by boxes of tea taken from the cellar of British sympathizer Daniel Bowen.
