In 1759 Phillip and John Grandin acquired 1,000 acres known as the Hamden Tract.
Hamden was home to the Grandin Grist & Fulling-Mills, a Blacksmith Shop, and Abbott's Tavern.
Dr. John Grandin's house was built in 1775 with pitch pine lumber that came from Monmouth County.
The historic Fink Truss cast-iron bridge was constructed in 1858. It collapsed in 1978. The bridge's memory remains only as a series of photographs, measured drawings, and documents in the Library of Congress as part of the Historic American Engineering Record.
