Northwestern Monmouth County in 1889

Rutgers University has a nice collection of Monmouth County maps, including an historic 1889 county map. I've excerpted a portion of that map for this blog which shows the northwestern part of the county.

Matavan (Aberdeen Township) is outlined in yellow, with Cliffwood indicated in the north and Mt Pleasant in the south. Icons mark a school house and a Methodist Episcopal church. Matawan Creek and Brown's Point are shown. Matawan Borough appears in green. Within it stands the Matawan post office.

Note that neighboring Raritan consisted of what is today Hazlet, Union Beach, and Keansburg. Hazlet train station is clearly marked.
