Readington Village is located on Holland Brook, originally named Amanmechunk, which means large creek in the Unami Dialet. Readington was first settled by Europeans in the early 18th century by Dutch and English immigrants. In 1738, the Dutch Reformed Church of North Branch was moved west to Readington Village because of the growing population.
During the 19th century, Readington Village had a church, a mill, a store, a school and a tavern. The mill in Readington Village continued to run until about 1920 and was still standing until 1935.
