Englishtown's History

Englishtown's first white settlers were English, the first one on record being a colonist named James Johnson, who owned some land in the area in 1688. However, the name of the town actually derives not from nationality, but from the surname of the English family, who purchased much of the land in the area in the early 1700s. During the Revolutionary War Battle of Monmouth in 1778, Englishtown served as the American Army's battle headquarters, with the town's Village Inn serving as home for the high-ranking American military officers involved with the battle, including General George Washington. The Inn still stands today, and visitors can dine here.

This huge market facility gives customers the opportunity to shop for everything from car parts to antique furniture, just the kind of stuff one expects from a flea market.
