VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURE, RELIGIOUS ROOTS
Ocean Grove is a quaint historic seaside town listed on the National Register of
Historic Places and the largest assemblage of Victorian architecture in the nation.
Visitors enjoy mingling with locals at the beach, on the old-fashioned oceanfront
boardwalk and at Main Avenue shops and outdoor cafés. What started out in 1869
as a Victorian-era camp meeting site has become one of the Jersey Shore’s finest
year-round seaside resorts. Known as the “Jewel of the Jersey Shore,” Ocean
Grove offers one square mile of natural beauty, including pristine beaches, treelined
streets, serene boardwalk and parks, music and lecture programs, unique
eateries, outstanding inns and an eclectic shopping district.
