What happens when two villages are combined in one borough? The answer is Peapack-Gladstone, which is sometimes called the Twin Borough. Incorporated in 1912, two distinct villages are located in the northern part of Somerset County. Peapack is the southernmost village and Gladstone is the northern one. Both have a small shopping district, train station, post office, houses of worship, and homes in and around their Main Streets.
The two downtown areas are old fashioned and picturesque. Many homes lining Main Street, from stately Victorians to charming cottages or classic capes, feature well-tended green lawns and blooming flower gardens. Liberty Park has a small pond with fountains and picnic tables, and there’s a playground across the street. Concerts in the park and community events attract all ages in the warm weather. The trout-stocked Peapack Brook meanders through town, eventually joining the North Branch of the Raritan River.Back to top
