About Freehold Township NJ 07728

Historic Freehold Township was formed in 1693. Along with Middletown and Shrewsbury, Freehold was one of the three original towns in Monmouth County, and was designated as the seat of the Monmouth County government.

Freehold’s history has many ties to the American Revolution, and was known as a center of patriot activity. The Declaration of Independence was read aloud from the steps of the Monmouth Courthouse a few days after being signed in Philadelphia. The Battle of Monmouth was fought in what is now Monmouth Battlefield State Park, which is in Freehold Twp and Manalapan. A famous figure at the Battle of Monmouth was Molly Pitcher.

In 1852 a railroad station was established in Freehold, contributing to Freehold becoming an important commercial and industrial hub in central New Jersey.

In 1919 voters decided to separate the downtown area from the surrounding farmland areas, creating Freehold Boro, which is totally surrounded by Freehold Township. Freehold Boro kept the designation of being the county seat.

About Freehold Boro NJ 07728

Freehold Boro is the county seat of Monmouth County. In 1919 voters decided to separate the downtown area from the surrounding farmland areas, creating Freehold Boro, which is totally surrounded by Freehold Township. Land was donated that was suitable for a courthouse, and a village quickly grew around the courthouse. Other government buildings opened nearby, sheriff’s office, prison and a post office. Soon homes and small businesses soon followed. In the surrounding area, farms began to appear. The differences between the village area and the surrounding farmlands eventually caused the formation of Freehold Boro, using land from Freehold Township, which completely surrounds Freehold Boro. The two towns now have many shared services, but remain completely independent.
