'" Green Sergeant Covered Bridge, constructed in 1872 across the Wickecheoke Creek, is located just west of Sergeantsville and is the oldest remaining covered bridge in New Jersey.

Until that time, this largely rural area was known as "Skunktown", perhaps because the town served as a market center for skunk pelts.
