"Bordering on History" Manalapan by KiKitC

Manalapan Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 14 photos

Battle of Monmouth

To most people, Manalapan brings up images of New Jersey Surburbia life...with shopping mall-lined highways and turnpike entrances. The Manalapan I am starting you with borders with Freehold Township and is the site for one of the most important battles in the American Revolution. The northern end of the battlefield lies in what is now Manalapan Township and historical sites are scattered in the area. A trip to the Old Tennent Church and Cemetery is a trip through history itself. Built in 1751, the Battle of Monmouth waged around it. It survived to tell it's story in the scarred exterior and patriot-filled graveyard.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Home of a significant Revolutionary Battle
  • Cons:Home of a significant Rat-Race Batte
  • In a nutshell:Take the time to explore the history and forget the present
