Three “villages” were established near-simultaneously, including the short-lived Portland Point located near Atlantic Highlands, Shrewsbury, south of the Navesink River, and the village of Middletown, which was, in a rough geographic sense, in the “middle” of the other 2.
Middletown was split in 1848 by the formation of Raritan Township, a section that included the future Holmdel, Hazlet and Aberdeen townships and the boroughs of Matawan, Keyport, Union Beach and most of Keansburg.
Middletown Township’s borders later remained relatively stable, changing only for the secession of Atlantic Highlands and Highlands in 1887 and 1900 respectively, and for a few other minor adjustments.
Hazlet derived its name from a Dr. John Hazlett who had an estate in Raritan Township near the Keyport-Holmdel Turnpike, now Holmdel Road.
The government decided to put a Railroad Station for produce (the region was farms) on the train line running from New York to Long Branch. Although the region was known as Bethany (Hence Bethany Road), It was not a well known area; so the station was named for Holmdel, a few miles down the road.
When the Federal Government decided a post office was necessary, they needed a name, as Holmdel already had one. They chose the name of the property that bordered the rail line, the property of Dr. John Hazlett.
1848 Raritan Township, which would later become Hazlet, is founded.
1925 Gov. George Silzer signs a bill splitting Union Beach from Raritan.
1967 Raritan Township's name is changed to Hazlet to give it a clearer identity. Before the change, it was one of three towns known as Raritan in the state.
