About 60 miles northwest of New York City, Branchville is a half square mile borough of approximately 850 residents in Sussex County. With a unique blend of small-town charm and modern-day amenities, Branchville embraces the old and the new, creating a vibrant community where people can live, work, and enjoy.

New Infrastructure

Branchville has the newest infrastructure in the entire state of New Jersey, with new gas and sewer lines, repaved roads and municipal water. The borough also has recreational facilities, including tennis/pickleball courts, plus softball, Little League, and American Legion baseball fields. 

A town on the rise

To add to our variety of dining and shopping, the borough has established a Redevelopment Commission, and downtown continues to thrive with the redevelopment of a landmark building. Branchville is headquarters to two property casualty insurance groups that work exclusively through professional independent insurance agents: Franklin Mutual Insurance and Selective Insurance Group, Inc.

Open Land, Open Sky

Branchville is a hub for environmental tourism, offering access to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, Buttermilk Falls, Stokes State Park, Mountain Creek Ski Area, and more. In addition, there are several public/private golf courses nearby. The Sussex County YMCA is 20 minutes away, offering year-round swimming, basketball and many physical exercise, muscle maintenance, and conditioning programs. 

For all ages

Just starting out? Looking for a place to stay and raise a family? Branchville offers an ideal environment to make your life happen. We have one of the lowest property taxes in Sussex County, great public schools, and The Highlands Preservation Act protects against over-development. Community festivities include the Halloween parade and scarecrow contest (often talked about in New York City!) plus many other holiday and cultural celebrations.
