New Brunswick is the original location of Queen's College, which was chartered in 1766 and renamed Rutgers in 1825. Today, New Brunswick is home to the largest campus of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.

Historically, the county border ran down the road known today as Albany Street in New Brunswick; part of New Brunswick was in Middlesex County and part was in Somerset County. For this reason, some records related to slavery in New Brunswick will be found in Somerset County records. The county borders changed in the 1850s, so that New Brunswick would be entirely in Middlesex County.
