BOUND BROOK LIBRARY & OLD PRESBYTERIAN GRAVEYARD
402 East High Street., Bound Brook, NJ 08805
Bound Brook’s first public library building was purchased by George LaMonte from the Taylor family. In 1924 this building was razed and the current building was erected as a memorial to Bound Brook’s service men and women who served in World War I by local builder Alexander Morecraft.
The Old Presbyterian Graveyard was the original cemetery located behind the Bound Brook Presbyterian Church. The church was destroyed by fire and hurricane in 1896. The oldest known burial is from 1744, but the cemetery was likely in use from about 1700. It is uncertain how many people are buried in this cemetery. About 700 are identified, but there may be as many as 1500. From 1976 to 1998 the Battle of Bound Brook Monument was located here, until it was moved to Billian-Legion Park. There are forty Revolutionary War veterans who are known to be buried here.

Seward Johnson stated years ago, “I think that becoming a father has profoundly affected my work. It has softened me and made me more aware of the innermost parts of people”
