Sprawled out at the border of Monmouth County, a vast, forested expanse spanning the Shark and Manasquan Rivers, Wall is an eminently historic town known for its quaint suburbs and natural cornucopian splendor. Between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries, the area was a capital city in the Lenape Nation. Native hunters chased game through the lush greenery while the land’s first farmers cultivated corn, beans and squash. Though thousands lived here, little of theirs still stands. Today’s Allaire State Park was an indigenous ceremonial ground before the arrival of Europeans forced the First Nations peoples west sometime during the mid-seventeenth century. The natural richness of the area attracted scores of settlers who trickled in steadily and in ever increasing quantities beginning at around the start of the eighteenth century. Farmsteads and villages were sporadically erected from then on, with Wall finally becoming populated and developed enough to demand township in 1851.
Today, Wall Township is a laidback collection of communities spread out to the fringes of the Jersey Shore.
