Spotswood is a borough in Middlesex County nestled within the heart of the Raritan Valley region, with the Manalapan Brook and Matchaponix Brook forming the confluence of the South River (a Raritan River tributary) inside the borough. Spotswood was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 15, 1908, from portions of East Brunswick Township, based on the passage of a referendum held on May 12, 1908. Its first settler James Johnston originally called the place “Spottiswoode”, named for his old place of residence in Scotland, and dates back to its original settlement in 1685.
