A quaint oceanfront community nestled on the New Jersey shoreline, Manasquan was settled in 1685 and incorporated in 1887. Construction of the railroad turned the quiet village of Manasquan into a popular vacation destination for city folk lured by the healthy sea air and fishing. Within the last 25 years, Manasquan has seen a dramatic increase in its number of year-round residents and the growth of its business district. This remarkable collection of historic photographs and illustrations guides the reader from Manasquan’s early years through the 1950s.

Through vintage photographs and informative captions, this volume illustrates the growth and development of Main Street, the construction of tree-lined neighborhoods of Victorian homes and beachfront bungalows, and the important opening of the Manasquan Inlet—the entrance to the Intracoastal Waterway.
