Bridgeport, NJ, is located within Logan Township. It is one of only two settlements established as part of the New Sweden colony along the Delaware River in the mid-1600’s. Originally called new Stockholm, this tiny community is nestled along the Delaware River and at the mouth of Racoon Creek. Just two miles east of Bridgeport is the Mortonson-Schorn Log Cabin.
The cabin structure was built by Morton Mortonson, the grandfather of John Morton, who signed the Declaration of Independence. This one room and no windows cabin reflects Swedish style construction and is considered to be on of the oldest original log cabins of Swedish architecture in the United States. The cabin was used as a station for the Underground Railroad prior to, and during the Civil War.
The Delaware River area where Bridgeport sits has a rich history dating back to the Lenape Indians, whose various tribes covered much of the region. In 1609, the river was visited by Henry Hudson of the Dutch East India Company. Hudson, an English explorer, had been as hired to find a western route to China, but his discoveries in America led the way for early Dutch colonization. Now the river is a major shipping artery for the East coast, with crude oil being the largest single commodity to be transported through its waters. Bridgeport is an important community along the river and grew from its waters, as well as Racoon Creek.
Today the Bridgeport area is a quaint residential community. The streets are lined with modest, reasonably priced homes, which adds to the charm and character of the neighborhood.
