Red Bank, New Jersey, USA

Red Bank, Monmouth, NJ

Native Americans traded freely with English and Dutch settlers in the mid-17th century, who purchased land in the area.

It is believed that the name Red Bank was first used when Thomas Morford sold Joseph French "a lot of over three acres on the west side of the highway that goes to the red bank," in 1736. In those early days the land known today as Red Bank was part of Shrewsbury Township, one of Monmouth County’s first three townships. In 1870 it split from Shrewsbury to become the town of Red Bank. Nine years later, it rejoined Shrewsbury only to separate again a few months later. In 1908, Red Bank was formed as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature and was permanently set off from Shrewsbury Township.
