Established in the late seventeenth century by European settlers, the small-town agricultural region that became Matawan Borough and Aberdeen Township transformed from a colonial-era shipping hub to a bustling center of commerce and manufacturing, as well as a summer resort destination. The residents' ongoing endeavors to preserve the area have fostered the transition into a cherished suburban bedroom community building toward the twenty-first century.
