Go down the shore to Belmar, a unique community settled in 1700 and enjoy nostalgic images of its early days.

Belmar, a unique shore community formerly known as Ocean Beach, was settled around 1700 and has lured summer visitors from near and far for over one hundred years. The beach, boardwalk, Shark River, and Silver Lake were such popular and beloved attractions that many summer residents chose to make Belmar their permanent home. The Borough of Belmar was carefully laid out by developers so that most streets run between the Atlantic Ocean and Shark River, capitalizing on the cool breezes and scenic
views of this area. In the early days there were
numerous luxurious hotels, many of which are pictured in this new pictorial history along with
nostalgic images of swimming, boating, and fishing in the early years of this century. Also featured are vintage photographs of Belmar's Main Street shops, restaurants, and community celebrations, which together present a lively view of Belmar's history.
