Whitehouse

Whitehouse is a village in Readington Township, New Jersey along the Jersey Turnpike, just west of Mechanicsville.

Whitehouse Station is a neighboring CDP census-designated place and unincorporated area located within Readington Township, in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.  At the United States 2000 Census, the CDP population was 2,089, and has a total area of 1.3 square miles, of which 0.04 square miles (3.01%) is water.

Whitehouse Station takes its name from Whitehouse -- Abraham Van Horn's 18th Century Tavern -- which later became the rail station there.  White House Station still provides train service to the village through New Jersey Transit.  The main highway through town is Route 22.

Readington is the county’s largest township geographically and the community has retained much of its rural nature, with Whitehouse and Whitehouse Station providing the pleasures of small-town living. 

Readington has three major highways which made this area prime territory for industrial and corporate office complexes, including the world headquarters for Merck & Company, a major local employer located at 1 Merck Drive, Whitehouse Station.

All of Hunterdon County is considered a USDA Rural Development eligible area.

In 1722, Abraham Van Horn purchased 490 acres in Readington along the Rockaway Creek.  He built a grist mill and saw mill here.  Around 1750, he built a white plastered wall tavern on the creek where the Jersey Turnpike crossed (this is now the corner of Washington Street and US 22). 

The tavern began to be referred to as the "White House" by travellers.  The village, which sprang up to the east of the tavern also carried this name.  Stones from the original tavern can be seen along the retaining wall of the DAR cemetery, where the tavern once stood.  The village of White House stretched along the Jersey Turnpike (now Route 22 and Old Route 28), which was the main street.  The village included taverns, stores, grist mills, an academy, a Dutch Reformed Church and numerous houses.

The nearby Whitehouse Station, which also indirectly took the name from the tavern, was not built up until 1848 when an extension of the Somerville and Easton Railroad was built.
