O Perth Amboy’s history dates all the way back to 1651, when Leni Lenape Indians gave a piece of their land to Augustine Herman who then changed the name from Ompage to Emboyle, and then to Amboyle. After the first settler’s came, they began to shorten the name to Ambo and Amboy.
Perth Amboy is the only city to be incorporated twice as two different names. They received their own charter in 1718 after the end of the American Revolution.
An interesting fact about Perth Amboy was that in 1848 to 1849 the mayor of the city, Lawrence Kearny, was a commodore in the U.S. Navy and was still able to maintain the mayorship. This is the only time in history that this has happened.
They have the oldest City Hall, in the nation that is still being use to this day. It was built in 1717 and has burnt and rebuilt multiple times in its history. In 1762, the city build the official Royal Governor’s Mansion, called the Propriety House, and is the only mansion of its kind still intact from Colonial days. William Franklin, Benjamin Franklins son became the Royal Governor in 1774, but was arrested by the continental army and the house, from then on, switch hands until it became property of the state.

If you have been dependent on drugs or alcohol, you may have tried and failed to quit on your own. Research shows that the vast majority of substance abuse addicts fail to achieve long-term recovery and abstinence without outside treatment.
Many substances abusers don’t realize that their long-term addiction has made significant changes to the composition and function of their brain. The brain is rewired to promote more substance abuse, and this continues long after an addict stops using.
Another aspect that addicts routinely fail at when trying to quit on their own, is coping with the wide variety of triggers that can cause them to relapse. They also don’t know how to properly cope with the behavioral and psychological aspects of addiction when they try to quit on their own.
