Manalapan Township and Englishtown Borough— originally a part of the township—share a long and rich history dating to the Revolutionary War. From the late nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries, the township was composed of several small villages that sustainedthemselves through farming. In creating this book, author Richard J. Dalik seeks to preserve the significance of this thriving stage of the communities' heritage. Manalapan and Englishtown includes fascinating photographs, engravings, and postcards illustrating the early rural way of life in these areas. Vintage images of farms, mills, houses, schools, churches, streets, and families are presented together with informative captions to transport the reader to an earlier time and another Manalapan. In addition, some early views highlight the Battle of Monmouth—fought mostly on the farmlands of ManalapanTownship—and other historical landmarks of that period.
