Wall Township – New Jersey
Wall Township is located in eastern Monmouth County – New Jersey. The town was officially formed in 1851. It is bordered now by Manasquan, Belmar, Spring Lake, Brielle and Lake Como. All of these towns have their own courts, with the exception of Lake Como, whose court is hosted in Belmar Municipal Court.
The town takes its name after Garret D. Wall. Wall was an attorney who also fought in the war of 1812. About 26,000 people live in the township. There is a large Irish-American population. Many other residents of Wall Township trace their heritage to Italy and Germany.
More Wall Township residents have traditionally worked in construction more than any other profession. The 2008-present recession therefore took a heavy toll on the town. However, its proximity to the New Jersey shore, desirable suburban neighborhoods and access to major roadways gives Wall Township a natural advantage.
