Old Tennent Church

Old Tennet Church, Manalapan Located adjacent to the Battlefield on Tennent Road, north of Route 522, the Old Tennent Presbyterian Church was built in 1751-53 and served as a temporary hospital for the American wounded. Tradition says that musket balls pierced its walls during the battle.

The church was named in memory of the pastors John Tennent and his brother, William. Near the church are monuments to soldiers killed during the Battle of Monmouth, including Col. Henry Monckton, the highest ranking British officer to die in battle.
