Millstone Township is located in the southwestern section of Monmouth County New Jersey. The residents still enjoy the beautiful landscape our town's forefathers enjoyed centuries ago. Our first residents were the Lenape Indians. Later the Europeans came to clear land for homesteads, which in turn became our farmlands of today. Our town is named after the Millstone River that originates in the Township. The river was first named by the Lenape Indians as the Mattawong and later renamed by early settlers as Millstone River. Seven waterways originate in this area. Millstone River, Rocky Brook, Ivanhoe Brook, Manalapan Brook, Assunpink Creek, Toms River and Doctors Creek.
Many acts of legislature took place to carve out our boundaries, as we know them today. Millstone Township was formed from surrounding boarders from Freehold, Monroe and Upper Freehold Townships. The municipality was formed and incorporated by an act of legislation on February 28, 1844. It contains a grand total of 23,700 acres or 37.36 miles of rolling countryside located in the heart of New Jersey. It is in the middle of Monroe Township in Middlesex County, Manalapan, Freehold and Upper Freehold in Monmouth County, and Jackson in Ocean County and the borough of Roosevelt and East Windsor in Mercer County.
