Moore’s Inn

Alexis Fedorchak

Moore’s Inn is a restaurant, bar, and former inn located at the corner of Route 537 and Stillwells Corner Road in Freehold, New Jersey.  The inn was first opened in the 1700s and was a popular stop for soldiers such as George Washington during the Battle of Monmouth. I was able to learn that the Inn was close to destruction in the early twenty-first century but its historical importance and legacy caused it to be preserved and moved away from the busy highway. While researching this establishment, I was shocked to understand how close to destruction the building came before the local historical committees came to its rescue.
