Giclee Fall Foliage Prints

On every visit to my cousins in Freehold, I take lots of pictures for my Giclee Fall Foliage Prints. New Jersey in autumn is wonderful. I’ve never seen anything as exciting and calm at the same time.
Lucila and Roberto live in Morganville, very near to Freehold, a wonderful town that matches perfectly the surrounding Garden State environment. In the Fall, the city seems to change its colors just like the rest of the scene. It’s magical.


First Settlements

A semi-nomad society, the Lenni Lenape,  were the primal noted natives to reside in the region that composed Freehold.

The Dutch people were the front line settlers to overtake the area. In 1498, John Cabot was the first European to see this region. By the 17th Century, the English had secured over the land.

In 1685, Scottish colonizers, running away from religious subjugation back home, became the first to really settle the area.

Freehold,  meaning fee simple property ownership, was established by act of legislature as one of the three original towns in Monmouth County in 1693.

Freehold in the Colony

In 1714, Freeholder John Reid, wanted the administrative center located in Freehold. After negociations, the village was selected, and evolved quickly. Some of his descendants still live there.

In 1745, the most households in Freehold were still Scottish colonial families who gave their names to many important streets of today.


The Revolutionary War in Freehold

The American Revolution deeply impacted the area, which was a known center of patriot activity. The Declaration of Independence was publicly proclaimed, read aloud in Freehold, just a few days after being signed in Philadelphia.

However, the region fell under the Loyalists control after some British success in Long Island and tensions between both sides emerged.

I addition, a fugitive Loyalist Column fleeing from Philadelphia, was intercepted  there on June 28, 1778 resulting in The Battle of Monmouth, one of the largest combats of the Revolutionary War where many notorious historic figures fought.

The commune of Freehold turned into a significant hub in central New Jersey after many public improvements.

Previous tensions between the villagers and farms people were enlarged greatly in 1916 when a bad polio epidemic swept through Freehold. A referendum settled to split the town into two separate domains.

After World War II the area developed large neighborhoods of suburban family homes in consequence of the development of modern transport systems.

The township became a primary business center in the mid-state with the inauguration of Freehold Raceway Mall, the second-largest shopping center in New Jersey, in 1990.
