Settled in 1665 as one of the Two Towns of the Navesink, the township of Shrewsbury, New Jersey, played an important role in the development of Monmouth County. One of the most historically significant areas in the region, the original vast expanse of Shrewsbury Township—organized in 1693—has since evolved into an attractive 2.3-square-mileresidential borough. In this vivid photographic history, author Randall Gabrielan has brought together over two hundred vintage images that convey the special character of Shrewsbury through the years. Many of the organizations, people, and buildings that fostered the evolution of the community are represented here, and informative, well-researched captions document their individual historical contributions.
