Manasquan, located along the Atlantic Ocean at the southern end of Monmouth County, has been a settled community for nearly 125 years.
Native Americans were the first to enjoy this land along the river, inlet, lakes, streams, and brooks. The Unamis (“Turtle People”) branch of the Lenni Lenape fished and hunted from the Raritan River south to Barnegat Bay, but it was along the Manasquan River that they brought their squaws and children in the summer, to enjoy shellfish and other fruits of the Atlantic and its tidal waters. And it is from their presence on the Manasquan River that the name of the community is derived, although it would not be until 1887 that the name Manasquan would be the borough's official name.
It was once said that Manasquan was a fine community for two things – to make a living and to enjoy life. This is every bit as true today, as Manasquan's 6,310 residents enjoy living in a classic American town of thriving businesses, good schools, civic responsibility and happy families - alongside the ocean, river, lakes, streams, and brooks that make Manasquan unique.
Manasquan has a vibrant downtown with quaint shops and dining. Often the place of festivals and parades, the residents flock here all year round.
