The Lehigh Valley Railroad completed the New Jersey part of its main line through Jutland using its Easton and Amboy Railroad subsidiary in 1875 (the line for its majority of its existence traveled between Buffalo, New York and New York City) and in the early 1900s, a depot was erected in Jutland. The Lehigh Valley Railroad main line is now called the Lehigh Line now owned and operated by the Norfolk Southern Railway.
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.
