Incorporated from parts of Galloway Township in 1905, the city of Port Republic is located along the Mullica River in Atlantic County, New Jersey. The community was settled around 1637, although, in the early years of the town, it was known as Wrangleboro. During the Revolutionary War, Port Republic was used as a base by privateers who were capturing goods intended for the British, and the Battle of Chestnut Neck was fought there. Port Republic borders Galloway Township, as well as Washington Township and Bass River Township, in Burlington County. The city is part of the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve.
