Facts About Holmdel

The Battle of Monmouth occurred on  Sunday, June 28, 1778.  It was hot that day and several soldiers died of heat exhaustion. Sir Henry Clinton led the British soldiers on a march from Philadelphia to their ships anchored in Sandy Hook, passing right through Holmdel. Along their way the British soldiers plundered the farms and set them afire. During the Revolutionary War, the American Patriots fought for their lives and their liberty. They defended their land and their families.  Holmdel Township became a township on February 23, 1857. Holmdel was formed from part of Raritan Township. Raritan Township became a township on February 25, 1848. Raritan was formed from part of Middletown Township. Raritan also gave parts to form Keansburg, Keyport, Union Beach, and the remainder eventually became Hazlet Township in 1967. Middletown Township was formed on October 31, 1693.  So tracing a Holmdelfamily or property can be tricky: on and before the 1840 US Census it was called Middletown; in 1850 it was called Raritan Township, and in 1860 to current, it is called Holmdel. Farming continued to be the way of life and farmers continued to prosper.

A section of Middletown (now Holmdel) was known as the Hornet’s Nest. Near today’s Longbridge Road and Cross Farms, armed Patriots would hide in the woods waiting for British soldiers. Stings from the Patriots muskets often meant death to the British soldiers. They said it was like getting stung by a hornet. Today, as history repeats itself, Holmdel High School athletic teams call themselves the Holmdel Hornets, as they sting their opponents along their way to victory. After WWII, property values began to climb. In the 1960s, farmers realized they could make large profits by selling their acreage to land developers. Builders began building houses and streets and created new neighborhoods, like Heather Hill, Blue Hills and later The Vineyard. Before its development, this area was part of McCampbell’s Grape Farm – the largest grape farm in New Jersey. One by one the farms disappeared but there are still a few farms left. Some are privately owned. The farms purchased and now owned by Holmdel Township are restricted to agricultural use. These purchases were made to preserve examples of the farming way of life, which was for so long a part of Holmdel’s history. You can still buy Holmdel grown fruits and vegetables in Holmdel produce stores and farm markets.
