Port Republic is a city on the Mullica River, located in Atlantic County, New Jersey. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city had a total population of 1,115,[7][8][9] reflecting an increase of 78 (+7.5%) from the 1,037 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 45 (+4.5%) from the 992 counted in the 1990 Census.[18]

Port Republic was settled as early as 1637, but a charter was not applied for until the founders Evi Smith, Hugh McCullum, and Richard Wescoat applied for a Royal charter to build a dam, sawmill, and gristmill on their land along Nacote Creek.[19]

In its early days, Port Republic was known as Wrangleboro.[20] During the American Revolutionary War, Port Republic provided refuge to the residents of the nearby community of Chestnut Neck when the British Army, arriving by ship, sacked their town on October 6, 1778. It had been used as a base by privateers who were capturing goods intended for British forces.[21] Among the refugees was Daniel Mathis, a tavernkeeper who built the Franklin Inn in Port Republic, which is used as a private house today. Some of the British ships were trapped in the creek by the ebb tides.[19] The General Lafayette Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution erected a monument on October 6, 1911, to mark the site of the Battle of Chestnut Neck. A Continental Army soldier at the top of the 50-foot (15 m) monument faces the river, "guarding the shore" against the approaching enemy.[22]

Port Republic was incorporated as a city by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 1, 1905, from portions of Galloway Township.[23] It is a dry town, where alcohol cannot be sold.[24][25]

Geography[edit]

Port Republic is located at 39°32′04″N 74°28′37″W / 39.534381°N 74.476981°W / 39.534381; -74.476981 (39.534381,-74.476981). According to the United States Census Bureau, the city had a total area of 8.583 square miles (22.230 km2), of which, 7.482 square miles (19.378 km2) of it was land and 1.101 square miles (2.852 km2) of it (12.83%) was water.[1][2]

The city borders the township of Galloway in Atlantic County, and both Washington and Bass River townships in Burlington County.

The city is one of 56 South Jersey municipalities that are included within the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve, a protected natural area of unique ecology covering 1,100,000 acres (450,000 ha), that has been classified as a United States Biosphere Reserve and established by Congress in 1978 as the nation's first National Reserve.[26] Part of the city is included in the state-designated Pinelands Area, which includes portions of Atlantic County, along with areas in Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Ocean counties.[27]
