A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Allentown, New Jersey
Welcome to Allentown ...
Although we found mention of Allentown during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Allentown was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Allentown was located in Monmouth County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Allentown to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Allentown - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Allentown, please Contact Us.
When the people of Allentown refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Allentonian<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Allentown might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
