Robbinsville, the former Washington Township, is the name of the township situated at exit 7A on the New Jersey Turnpike. The township was established in 1859 and was a part of East Windsor prior to this date. The township as well as the townships of East and West Windsor can trace its "roots" to a land grant from Colonial Times.

For many generations it was the home of the Uname people (Turtle Clan) of the Lenni Lenape. Artifacts from these people have been found throughout the township. When Pond Road Middle School was being built arrowheads and pottery shards were discovered on the land where this school was built.
