Inscription.  First known as the Reformed Church of Freehold and Middletown, it divided in 1825 and became “The First Reformed Church of Freehold.” In 1931 its name was changed to “The Old Brick Reformed Church.”

The first building stood on Hendrickson’s Hill in what is now Marlboro Village. In 1782 a church was built on this present location but taken down in 1826 to make room for the present edifice.

The Oldest Reformed Church in Monmouth County, it gave birth in 1825 to the Holmdel Reformed Church. In 1842 to the Reformed Congregation in the town of Freehold and in 1856 to the Reformed Church in Colts Neck.
