February 21st is Ocean Townships Birthday. The Township was formed February 21, 1849. The Township Council recognized and remembered this anniversary at their regular meeting, which happened to be on that date. The Township unveiled photos from the Museum collection of well known Ocean Township locations.
Resolutions were presented by: Thomas Arnone, Director of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholder; Assemblyman Eric Houghtaling on behalf of our legislators; and, Monmouth County Clerk, Christine Giordano Hanlon, who presented both the Museum and the Council copies of the 1849 map creating the Township of Ocean.
