Scobeyville is an unincorporated community located within Colts Neck Township in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States.[2][3] The settlement is named for the Scobey family which has inhabited the township since the 1700s. The site housed a one-room schoolhouse, a post office, and a general store.[4] An apple farm set up by William Laird was located in Scobeyville; the cider produced there were fermented into hard cider and applejack. The distillery operated in Scobeyville form the 1700s to Prohibition and then again since 1933. The Laird family continues to operate an apple distillery in Scobeyville.[5] In addition to the distillery, the remainder of the area today consists of farmland and the Dorbrook Recreational Area. County Route 537 is the main east-west road running through the area while Laird Road heads north from CR 537.[6]
