Galloway Township is huge…it covers 115 square miles, making it the largest municipality in the state of New Jersey. Its location close to Brigantine and Atlantic City makes it a great spot for restaurants, retail stores and other “along the way” businesses, but it’s also spacious enough to offer space for your industrial center, warehouse, or office building. Galloway Township is home to Smithville, itself a popular destination for shopping and recreation.

A History of Galloway Township

Galloway Township received a Royal Charter in 1774 as it was carved from portions of Egg Harbor Township in what was then still part of Gloucester County. Following American independence, the municipality was incorporated as one of New Jersey’s original 104 townships in 1798. After becoming part of the newly created Atlantic County in 1837, Galloway Township was reduced in size over the years to create Mullica Township (1838), Egg Harbor City (1858), Absecon City (1872), Brigantine City (1890) and Port Republic City (1905). Despite those redactions, Galloway Township remains the state’s largest municipality.

Smithville is home to the Smithville Towne Center and The Village Greene. These separate but adjacent tourist attractions share a late-18th Century-theme and contain, between them, more than 80 shops, restaurants, taverns, and amusements along with a planned housing development and a retirement community.

The Smithville area of Galloway Township dates to 1787 – just 14 years after the township received its Royal Charter – when the Smithville Inn was built as a rest stop along what was a well-traveled stagecoach route. By 1874, less than a century later, the Inn had grown to six times its original size and was a well-known restaurant and lodging establishment. In the early 1900s, however, the facility was abandoned, and sat fallow until 1952 when it was restored and reclaimed its once-proud past as a local eating establishment. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964, just years before work began on the Towne Center and the Village Greene developments.

Galloway Township also was home to one of South Jersey’s most contentious Revolutionary War encounters – The Battle of Chestnut Neck – in October 1778. At the time, Chestnut Neck was a thriving trade center, with most of its merchants being privateers (a.k.a. pirates) who would shanghai British cargo ships and convert the vessels for their own use. British General Sir Henry Clinton planned a major assault on the settlement to – in his words – “clean out that nest of Rebel Pirates” by sending nine ships and about 300 troops to the area.

While bad weather tempered the effectiveness of the raid on Chestnut Neck, with only one British soldier being wounded and no casualties on the American side, the skirmish led – about a week later – to the Little Egg Harbor Massacre where – in what is now Little Egg Harbor Township, Ocean County — British troops bayonetted to death nearly 50 American soldiers while they slept.

There’s no need to worry about British soldiers today, of course…Galloway Township now thankfully is a pleasant area that makes for an ideal destination for your business investment.
