Headquarters is an unincorporated community located within Delaware Township in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, United States. The settlement is centered around the crossing of Zentek Road over the Caponockons Creek, near the intersection of Zentek Road and Ringoes-Rosemont Road (County Route 604). The area is part of the Headquarters Historic District, a listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Headquarters was the site of a mill established in 1735, one of the first in Hunterdon County. The industry thrived until the early 20th century when the mill shut down. The district was first established as a historic area by Delaware Township in the 1980s to push back against a widening of CR 604. It is now on the national list of historic districts with a renewal of its boundaries occurring in 2016.
