What is now Old Bridge Township was originally incorporated as Madison Township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 2, 1869, from portions of South Amboy Township (now City of South Amboy).[7] On November 5, 1975, voters approved a referendum, by a 7,150 - 4,888 margin changing the township's name to Old Bridge Township.[8][9] The township's name was changed to avoid confusion with the borough of Madison in Morris County.[8][10] (However, the name "Old Bridge" for a location "on the Camden and Amboy Railroad, about eight miles beyond South Amboy" (or "about seven miles from South Amboy"), goes back to at least 1853.[11]) Old Bridge Township has consistently been a contender for the best places to live in the United States by Money Magazine.[12][13]
