With over two hundred historical photographs, Allentown and Upper Freehold Township offers a fascinating overview of two communities in Monmouth County that are closely tied together historically and culturally. Allentown and Upper Freehold Township are located at the western border of a county that nearly spans the state from the Atlantic Ocean to a few miles from the Delaware River. This book explores how the county's last rural landscape, Upper Freehold Township, deals with the increasing pressure of development and the effects of these changes on the charming community of Allentown. See the pastoral beauty of farms such as Merino Hill and the small settlements that dot Upper Freehold. Discover the "most crooked Main Street in America," at Imlaystown, the creamery at Cream Ridge, and the important landmarks of the Old Yellow Meeting House and the Allentown mill.
