The borough of Red Bank, New Jersey was incorporated in 1908. It is located along the Navesink River, in Monmouth County. The community was initially formed as a town in 1870, and in 1879, it became Shrewsbury City, which lasted for only a few months. The community was named as early as 1736, when Thomas Morford sold three acres of land to Joseph French, describing it as a lot of over three acres on the west side of the highway that goes to the red bank. Settled by English colonists, Red Bank became a shipbuilding center, then a commercial and manufacturing center.
