An Introduction to the History of Boynton Beach, NJ

The personal injury attorneys in Boynton Beach, NJ, at Garden State Justice Group would like to offer some details on the neighborhood's history.

Boynton Beach

The neighborhood of Boynton Beach is located within Sewaren, helping to form Woodbridge Township in Middlesex County, New Jersey. It lies along Arthur Kill. The main roadways are Woodbridge Avenue, Bridge Street, East Summit Avenue, and Austin Street. The nearby communities include Port Reading, Maurer, Avenel, and Perth Amboy. 


C.W. Boynton And The Boynton Family originally owned the waterfront area of the town of Sewaren, hence the naming of the neighborhood. They were a wealthy industrialist family that became wealthy off the resources of the area. The Boynton Clay And Fire Brick Company and the Boynton Lumber Company are just two of the companies they owned and operated in the area. 

The neighborhood became a resort community attracting people from all over. Some of the activities they offered the guests included:

  • a large pavilion to watch regattas
  • swim competitions

  • Woodbridge Animal Group 
  • Bark Avenue Pet Salon 
  • Harbor Learning Center
  • Marano Motors Inc.
