The Lehigh Valley Railroad completed a line between Buffalo, New York and New York City in 1875. The line passed through Jutland, and in the early 1900s, a depot was erected there. Jutland was a center for produce marketing, and fruit and milk were the most popular items transported to New York City. The Hunterdon County Fruit Exchange was located in Jutland, and in 1889, about 16,000 baskets of peaches were processed there. Jutland had a post office, farm equipment store, blacksmith, large fertilizer and feed store, school (now a day-care center), and town hall.
