Getting to Know Squankum, NJ

The personal injury attorneys in Squankum, NJ, at NJ Injury Guys would like to share some of the community's history and details.

Squankum

The unincorporated community of Squankum is located within Howell Township in the southern region of Monmouth County, New Jersey. The community is surrounded by Farmingdale, Lakewood, Wall Township, Allenwood, and Carmerville. Some of the main roadways within the neighborhood include Interstate 195, County Road 524, and County Road 547.

History

The region was inhabited by the Lenni Lenape Native Americans. The name stems from the Lenape, meaning "places where level spirits dwell." 

The early settlement in the area was fueled by agriculture and patterned off of the locations of high-quality soil. Several cranberry bogs were constructed along the Marsh Bog Brook during the late 1800s into the early 1900s. Many of the bogs were forced to close down due to the intrusion of saltwater with the freshwater in the 1930s.
