Potterstown is an unincorporated community along the border of Clinton and Readington townships in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, United States. Potterstown once was home to taverns, a blacksmith, a store house, a wheelwright and a pottery shop which gave the hamlet its name. It is along an old Raritan Path and on the Jersey Turnpike. Aray Van Guinea, a free African-American, donated land for the construction of the German Lutheran Church. Robert Livingston, James Alexander, his son Lord Stirling and John Stevens all owned land here at some time. John Taylor, an officer with the Hunterdon 4th Militia built a house and mill, which was used during the Revolutionary War to provide soldiers with food. Taylor's Mill has plans to become the fourth Readington Museum.
