Manalapan is one of New Jersey’s doughnut towns. It circles around another. Englishtown is the doughnut hole. Inside the township’s boundaries lie others, such as Yorketown, Elton, Cahill’s Corner and more. The township was formed in 1848, and forty years later Englishtown was cut from its center.
The Lenni Lenape People who lived here for more than centuries had nicknamed this place “Paune” and “Manel” their words for Bread and Drinks. ManelPaune quickly changed to Manalapan, easier for the newcomers to say. Naming a land for the food found there meant it was a good ground to settle and farm.
The bread the Lenape made was typically acorn bread. They made it with the acorns that were found in mass here before the old growth trees were logged. They were a major food source, and the tribes could sustain the winter making bread from acorn flour. They also made cornbread and bean bread in season.
When the Europeans came in during the late 1600’s they learned from the local Lenape People that this was a good place for breads, and they took up the new farming practices that worked well here. They incorporated their own bread crops. By 1848 when Manalapan was incorporated, they grew wheat, rye, barley, corn, and oats. The town grew quickly to almost two thousand people in the early 1850’s.
The many early mills here made the area valuable and the British were often taking over the local towns. The battle of Monmouth took place partially in Manalapan. Eighty percent of the one thousand five hundred twenty acres Monmouth Battlefield State Park sits in Manalapan today. The strong successful farms were slowly developed into homes during the mid-twentieth century.
