Downe Township is located in the southern section of Cumberland County, in Southern New Jersey.

 

It is home to several historic mixed use villages such as Dividing Creek, Newport, Moneys Island and Fortescue. Commercial and recreational fishing and boating are an important part of the way of life here, in fact, Downe and Fortescue are known as the "weakfish capital" of the world.

 

What is now Downe Township was formed as a by Royal Charter on January 19, 1748, as Downes Township, from portions of Fairfield Township.  Downe Township was incorporated as one of New Jersey's initial 104 townships by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 21, 1798.

 

Downe Township values its rural way of living, its educational system and its residents and its businesses.  Silica sand production, public marinas, fishing  and  growing eco-tourism are some of its key industries.  Downe is also home to thousands of acres of permanently preserved open space that not only serves the Township but provides abundant open space for all of New Jersey's residents.
