Port Republic, NJ Real Estate

Port Republic is a city on the Mullica River, located in Atlantic County, New Jersey. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city had a total population of 1,115, reflecting an increase of 78 (+7.5%) from the 1,037 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 45 (+4.5%) from the 992 counted in the 1990 Census.

Port Republic was settled as early as 1637, but a charter was not applied for until the founders Evi Smith, Hugh McCullum, and Richard Wescoat applied for a Royal Charter to build a dam, sawmill, and gristmill on their land along Nacote Creek.

In its early days, Port Republic was known as Wrangleboro. During the American Revolutionary War, Port Republic provided refuge to the residents of the nearby community of Chestnut Neck when the British Army, arriving by ship, sacked their town on October 6, 1778. It had been used as a base by privateers who were capturing goods intended for British forces. Among the refugees was Daniel Mathis, a tavernkeeper who built the Franklin Inn in Port Republic, which is used as a private house today. Some of the British ships were trapped in the creek by the ebb tides.

Port Republic was incorporated as a city by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 1, 1905, from portions of Galloway Township. It is a dry town, where alcohol cannot be sold.
