The borough has a total area of 5.8 square miles of land. In 2010, the population was 2,582. The churches are aligned in town according to the areas development and it is reflectelime kilnd in their position on Main Street. The oldest church is closest to the center of town. Beginning from 1794, Peapack held a lime kiln. It was used to produce quicklime through the calcination of limestone, and was in operation until 1945.  The first Peapack Gladstone Bank was created in 1921 because a man decided that it was too far to travel to Oldwick to spend a day "banking." He decided to take the left portion of his hardware store and opened this bank.

An Indian camp originally stood on the land where Peapack is located. Peapack is believed to have been derived from "Peapackton," a Lenape Native American term meaning "marriage of the waters." This references the confluence of the Peapack Brook that winds through the town and joins the North Branch of the Raritan River. Gladstone was the name of the English prime minister. Pepack is one of the earliest towns in Somerset county dating back to 1701. It was also part of a deed in 1708, which recorded the sale of a large tract of land by the Lenni-Lenape Indians to new settlers.
