On November 8, 1977, the residents of Matawan Township voted to change the name of the Township to create a community identity separate from that of Matawan Borough. The residents voted to call their community Aberdeen Township. Officials believed the new name would draw attention to the Township, as it is listed first alphabetically among New Jersey's 566 municipalities.
Today, Aberdeen is a suburban township of 5.4 square miles containing a mix of residence, light industry and shopping centers. The Henry Hudson Trail is a 9-mile (14km) paved trail built on a former Central Railroad of New Jersey right-of-way and extending from Aberdeen Township east to Atlantic Highlands.
Aberdeen is part of the Matawan-Aberdeen School District, together with the neighboring community of Matawan. Schools in the district are Cambridge Park Developmental Learning Center (pre-school), Cliffwood Elementary School (Grades K-3), Ravine Drive Elementary School (Grades K-3), Strathmore Elementary School (Grades K-3), Lloyd Road Elementary School (Grades 4-5), Matawan Aberdeen Middle School (Grades 6-8), and Matawan Regional High School (Grades 9-12).
