Allaire Village is a historic bog iron town located in Allaire State Park in Monmouth County, New Jersey. James P. Allaire created the village to house his workers at Howell Iron works from the 1860’s to the 1840’s.
The village was a place where the workers never had to leave to live a whole life within the village. The beautiful and simple little chapel is the most famous building in the village. The church is unusual because the bell tower was placed in the back of the church instead of in the front. That was because it was too heavy for the front part of the church.
