Location


 
 

The Long Beach Island Historical Association's museum building was originally an episcopal Church built in 1882. It was purchased in 1976 by the Historical Association. The Association incorporated in the State of New Jersey as a non-profit organization, maintains the building and grounds and oversees all activities.

Exhibits include artifacts of early life on Long Beach Island, a Victorian parlour, a kitchen with its many utensils, decoys by a local woodcarver, a bridal gown collection, and scale models of some of our historic buildings.

There is also a children's area plus a large collection of scrapbooks containing pictures and articles of local events on the island.

Events

The Long Beach Island Historical Association produces many events, including walking tours through the historical area, historic trolley tours, craft shows, concerts and a Victorian Tea to name a few.

Free weekly programs are hosted throughout the summer on historical topics of interests from historic preservation, shipwrecks, the Pinelands, the Civil War, lighthouses, etc. Visit the website for the schedule of events.
