Old Church is an Battle of Monmouth in 1778.[5] Starting in 2004, the area experienced a major change from its agricultural roots to single-family residences on the south side of the area and age-restricted communities to the north.[6] This redevelopment also caused the severing of the main north-south road, Old Church Road and the extension of Federal Road which formerly had its western end at Old Church Road to Applegarth Road.[7] The a farmhouse named England House was moved 4,000 feet (1,200 m) to the Dey Farm site to preserve the area's history prior to the construction of the new houses in 2004.[6]
