Pittsgrove Township is a rural community that is located along the far eastern border of Salem County, New Jersey approximately one hour from the beaches of Atlantic City. The town was formed on December 6, 1769, by Royal charter, and incorporated by the New Jersey Legislature on February 21, 1798, making Pittstown one of the first townships established in the state.
Named for William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham, who was a supporter of the colonies. Pitt was a British statesman who led the British government, twice, in the middle of the 18th century. During the American Revolutionary War, Chatham understood the gravity of the situation with the American colonies and proposed the “Provisional Act”, in an attempt to find a middle ground.
His proposal would maintain Parliamentary sovereignty over the colonies yet meet their demands: no taxation without consent, independent judges, trial by jury, and a recognition of the Continental Congress. The British Lords defeated the act, but due to his efforts, Pitt became popular among Americans. The town was named in his honor, not by force.
Pittsgrove is home to the Moshe Bayuk House, an important landmark in Jewish history. Built in 1897, the house is associated with the late 19th and early 20th century Alliance Colony. It was a Jewish agricultural community established in 1882, which held prestige here. The Alliance Colony was created by Jews who had fled Russia and Eastern Europe for the same religious reasons as the pilgrims, they feared prosecution. While most of the early buildings built here have been destroyed, the Moshe Bayuk House is the last residence standing in its original space.
Moshe Bayuk was a business leader and an early settler in the Alliance Colony. There was a restoration funded by a trust grant on the property. The alliance heritage center will have its home here, with the Jewish Federation of Cumberland County.
