The borough was formed as New Shrewsbury by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on August 15, 1950, based on the results of a referendum held on July 18, 1950, after breaking away from Shrewsbury Township.[7] It was renamed "Tinton Falls" in 1975, to avoid postal errors.[8] The name came from Lewis Morris's plantation, Tinton Manor, which employed free white workers and slaves. The borough is also home to the highest waterfall on New Jersey's coastal plain.
