The Hampton Township Committee recently adopted a resolution denouncing hate crimes.  Unfortunately, the Committee was made aware that another incident of hate has been perpetrated in our community.  The Hampton Township Committee stands firm in the belief that these types of incidents do not reflect the values of the citizens of Hampton Township, and strongly condemns these actions.  The Hampton Township Committee celebrates diversity in the community and promotes the coexistence of all of its residents, and believes that a harmonious community depends on the willingness of its residents to practice mutual respect, decency and restraint.  The Hampton Township Committee strives to ensure the safety of all of its residents against violence and aggression and denounces the hateful expression of religious or political intolerance against others.  The Committee is saddened to learn of these events and is hopeful that through cooperation of multiple agencies that resolve can be accomplished and for peace to follow.

  • Free Radon Test Kits are now available at the Hampton Township Municipal Office to residents. First come first serve for limited supply. Radon is a serious health risk. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer & the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. But because radon is invisible & odorless it is easy to ignore this potential hazard in our own homes. Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally when uranium & radium break down in the soil & in rock formations. Radon gas moves up through the soil and finds its way into homes through cracks in the foundation & openings around pumps, pipes & drains. Radon is measured in picoCuries per liter of air. The average U.S. indoor level is 1.3 pCi/L. At 4 pCi/L, the risk of lung cancer from radon is greater than the risk from fire or other home accidents. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency & the DEP recommend that action be taken to reduce radon levels if the level in the home is greater than or equal to 4pCi/L. For more information on radon, please contact the DEP Radon Program at 800-648-0394 or visit To view Hampton Township's Proclamation on Radon Action Month, please click here.

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.
