Monroeville, NJ sits in both Elk Township and Pittsgrove Township. It has its own zip code, but its five thousand or so residents live in both Salem and Gloucester Counties. Since the students go to school in Pittsgrove schools, it is generally assumed that it is governed by Salem County. The town of Monroeville is still mainly farmland and dense woodlands today.
At the end of the nineteenth century, this area wanted farm labor and agricultural growth. Jewish charities saw an opportunity for Russians fleeing religious prosecution in Europe to come and start farms. The charities chose New Jersey because of the proximity to established groups in New York and Philadelphia.
The the first Jewish colony was created to be “Alliance” in 1882, and many settled in Monroeville because of the land prices and nice conditions. They were the first Russians in the area, and most of them were not farmers. They were given a few cows, land and little else, but they made the most of their new home.
A train station came to the area and it was called Monroe Station. It was named for a local religious figure, Reverend Samuel Monroe. There are many references made to the once loved cigar factory and creamery on “Scott’s Corner” as well from that time period. Much of the information known from these small colonial towns like Monroeville was collected from personal bibles and clerk records of home deeds, with letters an notes in heirloom collections.
