Award presentation, remarks, photos, followed by walking tour!
The downtown area of Freehold is the heart of the Borough, which is located centrally in Monmouth County. Like many towns of its time, it is the historic village center for much of the surrounding population. The Borough is home to a vibrant downtown full of churches, entertainment venues, restaurants, shops, and personal and professional services. Freehold Borough is also the County seat and therefore is home to many county services and offices including the County Clerk in the Market Yard and County Superior Courthouse located between Court and Monument Streets and the Board of Chosen Freeholders in the Hall of Records. The Hall of Records is the historic site of the original Monmouth County Courthouse that, during the Revolutionary War served as a field hospital throughout the Battle of Monmouth. The center of downtown is part of the larger Special Improvement District (SID) which is operated by the Freehold Center Management Corporation DBA, Downtown Freehold in collaboration with the Borough of Freehold.
The tour will begin at Monmouth County Hall of Records, One East Main Street, Freehold, NJ
