What is now Old Bridge Township was originally incorporated as Madison Township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 2, 1869, from portions of South Amboy Township (now City of South Amboy). In a referendum held on November 5, 1975, voters approved changing the township’s name to Old Bridge Township by a margin of 7,150 votes to 4,888. The township’s name was changed to avoid confusion with the borough of Madison in Morris County. Use of the name Old Bridge for a location “on the Camden and Amboy Railroad, about eight miles (13 km) beyond South Amboy” or “about seven miles (11 km) from South Amboy” goes back, however, to at least 1853. Initially, the township was made up of farms and the population grew slowly. In 1880, the population was 1,662 and in 1950 it had reached only 7,365. Then the building boom started and farms gave way to developments. In 1960, the population was 22,772. The 1980 census cited 51,406 people. A lot of the town changed with the extension of Route 18 to the shore.
