About Eatontown NJ

Eatontown began as most towns do, with commerce.

In 1670, Thomas Eaton came from Shrewsbury to survey the shores of Mill Brook (now called Wampum Brook.) He decided to create water power for a mill that would grind farmers' grain into flour.

By 1796, Eatontown's business district included a tannery oposite Mill Pond; a tavern on the corner of Main and Broad Streets called The Eatontown Inn; and a general store on the east side of Main Street. Today, this section of town is called The Village.

In 1873 the New Jersey State Legistlature made the name of Eatontown official.
