Prepared and maintained by Point Pleasant Beach Borough Historian Jerry Woolley to share and preserve the history of Point Pleasant and Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey.

~ Also the home of the Point Pleasant Historical Society~

Welcome to the official web site of the Point Pleasant Beach Borough Historian and the Point Pleasant Historical Society.  Our combined goal is to collect, preserve and share the rich and fascinating history of the two great Jersey Shore towns of Point Pleasant and Point Pleasant Beach.  The Point Pleasant Historical Society also serves the beautiful seashore town of Mantoloking, New Jersey.  Click the Historical Society button for more information and don't forget to check out the Society's latest issue of the History Term Paper newsletter.

I hope you enjoy these Web Pages devoted to the history of two fantastic Jersey Shore communities......     Point Pleasant and Point Pleasant Beach.  Please E-mail any comments, suggestions or questions you may have about this site or about local history in general.

UPDATE....I am seriously contemplating branching off the Point Pleasant Historical Society Web Site as its own entity.  This would give the Historical Society more control over the content on the site and a better handle on updating the newsletter.  I am also considering giving the Point Pleasant Historical Society its own WEB Address as well.  I will keep everyone updated on the progress of this proposal.

COMING SOON!   COMING SOON!   COMING SOON!   COMING SOON!

 I know, I know!  I've been promising the availability of historic photographs of the Point Pleasant area for quite a while now.  The latest word is... I'm still ironing out the details, lead time,  pricing, logistics, etc.  It has also been on the back-burner while I have been dealing with other more pressing issues.  I'm still optimistic of making this offer a reality very soon and to be even better than originally planned!  Stayed tuned....

If you ever wanted to own an historic photograph taken in Point Pleasant (Beach) and the surrounding area, now is your opportunity!  Hundreds of historic photographs will very soon be available for purchase on this web site.  These will be top-quality black-and-white reproduction prints custom-printed from original negatives in three sizes...5x7, 8x10 or 11x14.  Convenient on-line ordering and payment will be available, as well as special requests.  Part of the proceeds from these sales will be donated to the Point Pleasant Historical Society.  If you have a question, please email me at ppbhist@worldnet.att.net.

    NEW!!!  A new page has been added!

The Historic Postcard Page contains links to thumbnails of post cards from my personal collection of Point Pleasant area cards.  These images each contain a brief caption describing the card and identifying the view.  As the post card images are added, the cards will be subdivided into categories.  The first category is titled "Greeting Cards/Aerial Views."  The scans will be of good quality and feel free to download the cards for your use and pleasure.  I will update the pages on a regular basis as time allows.  Just click on the Images Link and then select Post Cards, or click here to go directly to the page.
