Manalapan, New Jersey

Manalapan is a township in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Manalapan Township was formed by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 9, 1848, from portions of Freehold Township. Englishtown was formed as a borough from portions of Manalapan on January 4, 1888, based on the results of a referendum held the previous day.

The name “Manalapan” is derived from a word in the Lenape language that would mean either “land of good bread” or “good land to settle upon”.

Manalapan landmarks include the headquarters facility of the Monmouth County Library, the Manalapan Recreation Center, and the battlefield for the Battle of Monmouth. Manalapan Under the Stars, the township’s community celebration featuring rides, concerts, fireworks, and other activities, is held annually at the Recreation Center. Performers featured in the series have included Herman’s Hermits Starring Peter Noone and Tommy James and the Shondells.

Manalapan was rated the second-hottest town on the East Coast by Money magazine.
