Freehold Township is a Township in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Freehold Township was first formed on October 31, 1693, and was incorporated as a township on February 21, 1798. Portions of Freehold Township were taken to form Upper Freehold Township, Millstone Township, Jackson Township, Atlantic Township (now Colts Neck Township), Marlboro Township and Manalapan Township.
Freehold Township is a 38 square mile piece of suburban America located roughly halfway between New York City and Philadelphia. Freehold is known for the oldest daytime harness track in the United States, Freehold Raceway. The Township still maintains a historical feeling with landmarks such as Monmouth Battlefield State Park and the 18th century Oakley Farmhouse. Throughout the intervening three centuries, Freehold Township has been a place where people could raise their families, earn their living, and live out their life as they so chose. Both then as now, it has been a community of farms and churches, of homes and neighborhoods. In an age of discontinuities, this community maintains astonishingly strong roots in a rich colonial tradition and an illustrious past.
Freehold Township Schools are operated for elementary grade children of the Township. The Freehold Township Board of Education presently operates seven schools and an early childhood learning center. They propose their own budget that is annually voted upon by the citizens. Freehold Regional High School District refers to the six schools operated by the Freehold Regional Board of Education, which provide high school programs for eight Western Monmouth communities. Freehold Township and Freehold Borough send students to these schools, and the six other participating municipalities are the Boroughs of Farmingdale and Englishtown, and the Townships of Colts Neck, Howell, Manalapan and Marlboro.
