Pride in Our Past & Present

Settled by a group of Scottish Presbyterians beginning in the 1680's, Matawan was first called New Aberdeen, and then Mount Pleasant. Today, Matawan's historic town core retains its appeal as a place to live, work, and shop.

Sept. 30, 1686

400 acres granted to Stephen Warne
