The Many Post Office Buildings of Matawan
The first US Postmaster appointed to Middletown Point (Matawan) was Jonathan Forman (circa 1795).
The US Post Office was renamed Matawan in 1865. It had operated in the same building for 24 years (1861-1885) when Postmaster D. B. Strong moved the postal services south on Main Street to his offices across from the Presbyterian Church (on Main Street). The “Old Post Office Building” hosted businesses through at least 1892.
