Established in 1689, the Stelton Baptist Church is the state's second oldest baptist congregation.
The present-day NJ Transit Edison station was originally constructed c. 1870 at Central Avenue and Plainfield Avenue and named “Stelton” after the Stelle family, early settlers in Piscatawaytown who arrived in 1668 and who were still numerous in the area in the 1880s. The Pennsylvania Railroad renamed the station to Edison on October 29, 1956, as part of the changing of names in Edison to reflect the newly honored Thomas Alva Edison.
