Borough of Farmingdale

Known as "Today's Town...with Yesterday's Touch", Farmingdale, and its Main Street, dates back to an Indian path toward the Manasquan River. The town of Farmingdale started out with two stores, two taverns, and 10-12 dwellings.

In 1903, Farmingdale was incorporated into its own independent municipality, encompassing one-half square mile, it was known primarily as a residential and light industrial community. Now, more than a century later, governed by a Mayor and Borough Council, Farmingdale, at 0.5 square miles in land area, is an established residential and light industrial community of approximately 1600 residents. Its vibrant, small town commercial district meets the needs of its citizens, whose well-maintained homes on small lots evoke memories of days gone by. A look around Farmingdale today still speaks of yesterday.
