About Freehold Township
Historic Freehold Township was formed in 1693. Along with Middletown and Shrewsbury, Freehold was one of the three original towns in Monmouth County. It 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 Battle of Monmouth was fought in what is now Monmouth Battlefield State Park, which is in Freehold Twp and Manalapan.
In 1919 voters decided to separate the downtown area from the surrounding farmland areas. This created Freehold Boro, which is totally surrounded by Freehold Township. However, Freehold Boro kept the designation of being the county seat.
There are over 13,000 homes in Freehold Township, consisting of mostly single family detached homes. Furthermore, 9 condo complexes and 4 active adult communities are in town. When you search for a home for sale, you’ll discover that new construction is rare in Freehold Township. That’s because there are few parcels of land available. But homes can also be found that are 100 + years old.
While sometimes homes for sale in Freehold Township can be found for under $200,000, this rarely happens. The typical home for sale starts in the mid $200,000s, but can easily exceed $1 Million. Most of the homes for sale can be purchased in the $400,000 to $600,000 range.
Some of the largest developments in Freehold are Stonehurst and Colonial Acres among others. Many homes are in the East Freehold or the West Freehold section of town. For more info, call Art Reiman – Realtor in Freehold Township.
