The Bordentown Historic District (Boundary Increase), as an addition to the Bordentown Historic District, strengthens the district's local significance under National Register Criterion A for its contribution to Bordentown's industrial history. The Eagle Shirt Factory is one of several light industrial facilities in Bordentown that served local and regional markets. Eagle Shirt made men's dress shirts, sold under the "Eagle Shirt" brand, and was a large, local employer for several decades. The factory was in operation for nearly a century before it was abandoned in 1980. The existing historic district contains a variety of building types. Housing makes up the largest portion of the building stock within the district, but there are also churches, schools, banks, taverns and public buildings.
