Holmdel Township is a township in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States.

Holmdel is a suburb of New York City and is located just 15 miles west of the Jersey Shore. The Township is notable, among other things, for its historical and present connection to Bell Labs (and, later, Lucent Technologies and Alcatel-Lucent), who invented the transistor[7] in its facility in Holmdel. Important evidence for the Big Bang Theory was also discovered in another Bell Labs facility in Holmdel by Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson, both of whom won the Nobel Prize in Physics for their work here.

In fact, the town has come a long way from its humble agricultural origins. Holmdel's picturesque beauty, proximity to New York City and main highways, award-winning schools, large homes, rich history, PNC Bank Arts Center, and many high paying jobs within commuting distance has led Holmdel to be ranked the #1 "Six-Figure Town" by Money Magazine and CNN for 2009.[8]

As of the United States 2000 Census, the township population was 15,781. Holmdel Township was formed by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 23, 1857, from portions of Raritan Township (now Hazlet).[9]
