This 1861 Middlesex County, NJ map (courtesy of the Library of Congress) shows the village of Plainsboro. Plainsboro was originally part of South Brunswick and Cranbury townships. On May 6, 1919, Plainsboro was incorporated thanks to the efforts of many residents who wanted to provide their children with better educational opportunities.
