… just about the swellest one mile of suburbia in all of New Jersey.

Established in 1887, the borough of Dunellen began as a train stop for the Elizabethtown and Somerville Railroad. If you are good at math, this means that this fine gal turned 125 in 2012 (in fact, Dunellen is exactly one year younger than that other Jersey Girl, the Statue of Liberty).

Looking for information regarding its government, and local organizations?
Well, this is the place for it all! Check the event blog and calendar for upcoming community events. Of course, you can also get Dunellen 411 on your Twitter and Facebook feeds. Those social media accounts also have additional posts on high school sports, road closures, town trivia, events from neighboring towns, and more. (On FB, we’ve even reconnected a neighbor with her runaway hen!). In advance of a major storm, temporary administrators are added to make sure that the Dunellen 411 Facebook account is constantly monitored. Information regarding emergency storm action (Resource page originally created for Superstorm Sandy).
