Ocean Gate Borough - Stagecoach Station

The Jeffrey House in Ocean Gate is believed to have been a stagecoach way station, a place where travelers could stop and spend the night. The Jeffrey House was located on what use to be known as the Ocean Gate Turnpike. Nearby is the Jeffrey family cemetery. The oldest stone there marks the grave of John Jeffrey's wife, Elizabeth, who died on October 29, 1808.
