Siloam is an unincorporated community located within Freehold Township in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States.[2] Siloam was once the site of a school serving a district in the township until 1936.[3] County Route 527 passes through the center of Siloam. Exit 21 on Interstate 195 provides access to Siloam from the south. Except around the center of the settlement at the junction of CR 527 and Ely Harmony Road, the area consists of forests comprising the northernmost reaches of the Pine Barrens. The homes in the area are smaller in size and are found only along the aforementioned roads.[4]
