I have selected to
open my Goin’ Postal store in the Borough of Washington, New
Jersey. This small Warren County community is located in the
northwest region of New Jersey. The people of Washington are often
referred to as hardworking and genuine with a focus on family,
friendship, faith and service.
Washington Borough separated from Washington Township, which
completely surrounds it, in 1868. The community grew during the
19th century as a result of the transportation routes that ran
through or near the borough. The borough also served as a center
for the farmers of the surrounding townships.
During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the borough became
a Mecca of musical instruments manufacturers, the manufacture of
organs in particular. A bustling downtown developed around these
businesses. Many of the Victorian style houses in the borough were
built during this period.
The advent of the automobile brought Washington closer to both the
nearby Lehigh Valley and the not so nearby New York City area. In
the years following World War II, an increasing number of
Washington residents would commute to work in those two areas. In
addition, people from those areas began to settle in Washington,
and there were many new houses and apartment complexes built
during the late 20th century. As was the case in many similar
towns, the downtown area struggled to remain vibrant during this
time, and a major fire did not help matters. The 1990s saw a
population boom in Warren County, which continues today, as high
real estate prices and property taxes in New Jersey’s northeastern
counties push buyers to look further west.
Although the borough itself does not have much room to grow, it
has benefited from the growth of the nearby townships. Efforts are
underway to revitalize the downtown with new residential and
retail properties. I am very optimistic about the future of this
town and I wanted to be part of Washington’s Renaissance.
