We have a really good Freehold trivia question for you and we think that if you just think about it for a second, you'll definitely get this one.

We all know that Freehold is rich in history, so there are plenty of ways to go on this one. We decided to focus on a building. A very famous building that happens to have a really incredible story.

We'll give you three clues about the building. Just take a minute to think about it, and we're confident you'll be able to get this one. Here are the clues.

Clue #1...This building started as a courthouse and jail about 300 years ago.

Clue $#2...This building had a shaky start, needing to be rebuilt only 5 years later because a couple of prisoners broke out, and then 8 years after that this building burned down.

Clue #3...This building, on property originally purchased by a man named John Reid in 1714  remained a courthouse until 1954.

Do you think you have it yet? If not, we'll give you this bonus clue. The 3 word name of this building is prominently displayed in large letters on it's face on a main street.

I'm pretty sure that one should give it away. How about if I said a main street and a court street. You'd get it then, right? Of course you would. We're talking about the Hall of Records building! Congrats if you got it right!
