Manalapan, Marlboro and Freehold Townships
Manalapan, Marlboro, and Freehold townships are great places to live and raise a family. They offer a great school system, award winning parks and recreation, an efficient transportation network, proximity to stores, urban centers, shopping malls, hospitals, restaurants, an easy commute to New York City & Philadelphia, and a short distance to the Garden State Parkway and the NJ Turnpike. These towns are also great places to locate a business, with an affluent, educated consumer base and accessible retail corridors. They are growing more and more each year!
Manalapan was rated by New Jersey Magazine as one of the best places to live and work in the State and it was rated by Money magazine as the second "Hottest Town" to live in on the East Coast.
Marlboro Township was 150 years old on February 17, 1998. On that date in 1848, by an act of the State Legislature, Marlboro became an independent political entity. Earlier, it had been part of Freehold Township ever since English, Scottish, and Dutch settlers established the first farms in the 1600s.
Freehold is unique, it offers sidewalk cafes, historic tours, summer concerts, parades, Kruise Nite, a spectacular community theater, antique shops, farmer's market, retail stores, public parks, the Andrew Carnegie Library and churches.
