Roosevelt Borough Hall is located at 33 North Rochdale Avenue, Roosevelt NJ 08555; phone: 609-448-0439.
The Borough of Roosevelt has a land area of 1.93 square miles and is located in western Monmouth County. It was founded as Jersey Homesteads in 1937 and built under the Roosevelt administration as a New Deal Project [see Jersey Homesteads Historic District. The town was originally an agro-industrial cooperative, settled by garment workers from New York City. This removed, yet self-sufficient town was renamed Roosevelt in 1945, and grew into a popular retreat for artists. Although the borough has experienced some residential growth, the slow pace of development has helped the town retain much of its original physical appearance, earning Roosevelt a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.
