Freehold Township has a long and storied history stretching back to the earliest colonization by the British. It was also a hotbed of intrigue and action during the Revolutionary War.
In recent years, increasing transit options have made Freehold an attractive place to live for commuters who want to live in a vibrant community, yet work in the city. There are various transport options to Philadelphia, New York City, and Newark. This has promoted growth throughout the township, prompting new construction, as well as updates to older homes as they come onto the market.
