A look at Long Beach Island, NJ
There is a solitary house on a small private island off Center Street in Beach Haven.
Bonds’ Lifesaving Station in Holgate is now a private residence. It was one of six stations on Long Beach Island.

The Lucy Evelyn was a three masted schooner built in 1917 in Harrington Maine and homeported in Machias Maine. She served for a number of years including the packet trade to South America. At one point in World War II, she was shelled by a German U-Boat.

The fish factory processed Bunker. It was very active in the 1970’s. At some point after that, it ceased operations.
The old Coast Guard Station in Barnegat Light has been acquired by the Borough of Barnegat Light and is now the Borough Hall.
