Little Free Library!
Thank you to Retired Librarian Ms. Betsy Dewey, and her family, for generously donating and creating a "Little Free Library" in front of the Hampton Township Municipal Building.
Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and improves book access by fostering neighborhood book-exchange boxes around the world. The small library boxes number more than 100,000 around the world in over 100 countries! Hampton resident Betsy Dewey purchased and painted the LFL box now located in front of the municipal building. She will be acting as its steward. She and her family initially stocked the library with a variety of books for all ages. You are encouraged to stop by and take whatever catches your eye, then bring books to contribute when you can. Betsy is responsible for the upkeep of the box and will be regularly adding to the collection.

Message From the Township Committee:
At the last Township Committee meeting, the 2021 Budget was introduced. The Township is unable to control the spending in Trenton, we are unable to control the spending in Sussex County, but we were able to control the spending in Hampton Township. As a result, we as your Township Committee are proud to report that even with the state cutting funding to our schools, the 2021 Hampton Township Municipal portion of the budget reduces property taxes and at the same time, increases the annual donation to Hampton Township Fire & Rescue by $25,000 for the safety & well-being of our residents!

This is the first in a series featuring individuals making a difference in improving water quality in the Highlands and Ridge & Valley regions of New Jersey. Twelve environmental and conservation organizations are working together to protect the quality of drinking water in northwestern NJ, part of the 4-state Delaware River Watershed Initiative.
In the early 1700’s the forest teemed with wildlife. Wolves, bear, deer, bobcat, turkeys, and rich variety of small game shared this bountiful land with the Leni Lenape Indians. Settlers had yet to discover the beauty and the serenity of what was to become modern day Hampton Township.
On March 10, 1864, the State Legislature officially established the Township of Hampton, New Jersey. The small villages of Baleville and Washingtonville were no longer under the wing of the Town of Newton but became the community centers of the newly established township. The gristmills, country stores, and schools had sprung up as the population had increased and bound the inhabitants together and helped them to endure and prosper in this remote corner of the state.
Now, at the turn of the millennium, the Indians and wolves are but a memory. However, the scenic charm that attracted those early settlers still work its magic today. Over the years farms have replaced forests, and dams fill valleys with lakes where streams once wound their way down to the Delaware. Three centuries of growth and change have transformed Hampton Township from a wilderness into a thriving community, with a modern commercial corridor surrounded by rural neighborhoods that remain a haven for residents and tourists alike.
