|Holland Township 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.
