Description:
East Millstone is a census-designated place and historic district within Franklin Township, in Somerset County, New Jersey, United States. It is a small rural community that grew and prospered with a small industrial base in the 19th Century, centered around the Delaware and Raritan Canal at Amwell Road and the long-abandoned Millstone and New Brunswick Railroad that terminated in East Millstone. East Millstone was an independent municipality from 1873-1949.

The independent municipality of Millstone, New Jersey -- a borough which is not part of Franklin Township -- is located across the Millstone River, which is directly west of the Delaware and Raritan Canal.

East Millstone maintains its rural character into the 21st Century, with a firehouse, a post office and just a handful of local businesses. The housing stock is also quite old, with no new development in the East Millstone section of Franklin Township in recent years. William B.
