Overview

Colts Neck, New Jersey (Images of America Series) by Randall Gabrielan


Colts Neck, the Monmouth County township known by that name only since 1962, has witnessed a rapid pace of change in its recent past. The once-rural community has been adapting to suburbanization but longtime residents yearn to preserve memories of the municipality’s heritage, and in particular,
recollections of two well-known communities.
Colts Neck’s North American Phalanx was one of America’s best-known, nineteenth-century cooperative communities,
and as such has garnered the interest of philosophers and social scientists. In a completely different historical vein, Colts Neck embraces Scobeyville, widely known as the home of Laird’s.
Synonymous with New Jersey distilling, Laird’s has produced the
Apple Jack beverage for many years.
