According to Love Exploring " Named for the russet soil banks of the Navesink River, Red Bank has a history reaching back millennia. The region was originally occupied by the indigenous Lenape peoples for thousands of years, with English settlers arriving in the 17th century. Industries like shipbuilding, tanning and textiles meant that Red Bank soon thrived, while today it's quirky art galleries and creative restaurants that make this town tick."
