Lake Lefferts

The manmade Lake Lefferts is a great resource for anyone in Matawan who likes to get out and enjoy nature. Even though the lake is manmade, it is nonetheless a quiet and peaceful place to relax and exercise. The lake is stocked with fish, making it a popular fishing destination in the summer months. Its calm waters also make it a great place for canoeing and flatwater kayaking. Swimming is also an option here, a welcome amenity during the potentially hot summer months. Lake Lefferts is also the site of Matawan's annual Fourth of July fireworks display.

Matawan's Early Years

Prior to white settlement in Matawan, this part of the country was home to the native Lenape people, who referred to the area as "Mechananienk," a word that roughly translates to "where two rives come together". When Dutch colonists settled the area in the 1600s, their pronounciation of the Lenape word morphed into Matawan, which is how the area is known today. Scotch-Irish colonists in the same area at one point referred to it as New Aberdeen, though the borough was officially given its current and permanent name of Matawan in 1895.
