Peapack-Gladstone is a borough in Somerset County in the U.S. state of New Jersey. As of the 2000 Census, the borough population was 2,433. It is part of the New York metropolitan area, as well as the larger New YorkNewarkBridgeport, NY-NJ-CT-PA Combined Statistical Area.

Peapack-Gladstone was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 28, 1912, from portions of Bedminster Township, based on the results of a referendum held on April 23, 1912.[8][9]

Peapack is believed to have been derived from "Peapackton", a Lenape Native American term meaning "marriage of the waters", a reference to the confluence of the Peapack Brook and Raritan River in the area. Gladstone was named in honor of William Ewart Gladstone, who served as British Prime Minister several times between 1868 and 1894.[9]

The town was notable for being a major shooting location of the CBS soap opera Guiding Light from 2007 until the show's conclusion in 2009.[10]
