Description
West Windsor is a township located in present-day Mercer County (which was formed in 1838 from portions of Burlington County, Hunterdon County, and Middlesex County). Prior to 1838, West Windsor and neighboring East Windsor were part of Middlesex County. For this reason, many documents related to slavery in East Windsor and West Windsor can be found among Middlesex County records.

Portions of present-day Princeton were part of West Windsor township until the early 19th century.
