Welcome to Holland Township
Hunterdon County, NJ
Home Page



Holland Township is located in the northwestern part of the County. The Delaware River forms its boundary with Pennsylvania and the Musconetcong River, its boundary with Warren County. It was created from Alexandria Township in 1874. In 1876 it was re-merged with Alexandria Township and separated as a municipality of its own again in 1879. The approximate square mileage of Holland Township is 23.9 and the estimated population is 5,194.


The Musconetcong Gorge Nature Preserve is a rugged undeveloped park under the direction of the Hunterdon County Parks and Recreational System. The Preserve is comprised of 379 acres of steeply wooded terrain overlooking the Musconetcong River. This beautiful gorge includes many spring fed streams, a variety of plant species and wildlife. While the body of the area is a challenge to the seasoned hiker, a diverse trail system is being developed to provide accessibility for the less seasoned hiker. 









In response to inquiries regarding the 100 mile pipeline proposed that will cross the Delaware River.

PennEast Pipeline Company, LLC, Announces Project To Supply Lower Cost Marcellus Natural Gas To Mid-Atlantic Region.

The proposed PennEast Pipeline will bring low-cost Marcellus gas to natural gas customers in southeast Pennsylvania and New Jersey. At a cost of approximately $1 billion, this new 100-mile pipeline is designed with a 30-inch diameter to deliver up to 1 billion cubic feet of gas per day.
The pipeline will originate in Luzerne County in northeast Pennsylvania and terminate at Transco’s Trenton-Woodbury interconnection near Trenton, New Jersey.
PennEast will begin preliminary engineering studies in the coming months, along with a formal application before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). If all local, state and federal approvals are timely approved, construction of the pipeline could begin in 2017.
