A Bit of Local History
Our township has existed under the name Freehold since 1693, so we have a lot of local history we’d like to take a look back into that first century.
The year 1714 marks a pivotal moment when Freeholder John Reid, the first Surveyor General of East Jersey, advocated for Freehold to become the county seat. His strategic offer, selling the property at a discounted price, played a crucial role in clinching the decision. As a result, Freehold officially became the seat of the Monmouth County government, leading to the construction of the Monmouth Courthouse in 1715. The burgeoning village, initially named Monmouth Courthouse, swiftly witnessed the development of essential government buildings and the emergence of commercial enterprises, shaping the foundations of Freehold’s identity.
As of 1745, Freehold retained its colonial character, with the majority of families being Scottish immigrants. The juxtaposition of the growing village centered around the courthouse and the surrounding fertile farmland set the stage for the eventual division of Freehold into two distinct municipalities in the early 20th century. The fertile soil of Freehold contributed to successful farms, renowned for producing potatoes, beans, rye, and boasting excellent horse farms.
The American Revolution left an indelible mark on Freehold. In response to the Stamp Act of 1765, Sons of Liberty groups were established. The Monmouth Courthouse echoed with the proclamation of the Declaration of Independence, emphasizing Freehold’s role as a center of patriot activity. The ebb and flow of British and Continental control during the war, culminating in the Battle of Monmouth in 1778, witnessed notable figures such as George Washington, Molly Pitcher, and Nathanael Greene leaving an enduring imprint on Freehold’s history.
