Watchung began as a cluster of Indian campgrounds lining the Stony Brook. Today it encompasses an area of six square miles. It’s history begins with the town’s first residents – the Native Americans, and spans four centuries of Indian legends, colonial days, the American Revolution, the town’s industries, old homes and it’s share of misfortunes.
