Welcome to Manalapan
Manalapan is tucked amid the low hills of western Monmouth County, about 50 miles south of Manhattan, 28 miles northeast of Trenton, 18 miles southeast of New Brunswick, and 15 west of the Jersey Shore. Manalapan, the name of which is derived from Lenni Lenape for “the land of good bread,” or “good land to settle upon,” is home to the headquarters of the Monmouth County Library and was the site of the Battle of Monmouth in the American Revolutionary War. Deemed the second-hottest town on the East Coast by Money magazine, Manalapan is a beautiful place to live with a thriving economy, friendly community and highly rated schools. Manalapan completely surrounded Englishtown, making it one of New Jersey’s 21 “doughnut towns.” It shares a border with Freehold Township, Millstone Township, Marlboro Township, Old Bridge Township and Monroe Township.
