This man, Robert W. Watt,  has an important place in OG history.  Tell us who he is.


From the history of Ocean Grove  Four Score and Five.  (1879-1964):


“In 1921, the New Jersey Court of Errors and Appeals reaffirmed the decision of the NJ Supreme Court that the Ocean Grove borough bill was unconstitutional.  Robert W. Watt was Ocean Grove’s first and only mayor, serving less than one year.”


Editor’s Note:  The Borough of Ocean Grove only lasted one year.  The reason it was dissolved is because it kept religious blue laws, and that is why it was found to be unconstitutional.  It was a lost opportunity.  After that, governance was returned to the Camp Meeting.  Then in 1980, governance was given to Neptune Township after another Supreme Court decision.

We have a winner of our “Name That Jersey Shore Town” contest.  It is JW.

Allenhurst was founded in 1897, carved out of parts of Ocean Township.

Ocean Grove also was part of Ocean Township, but instead of being “carved out” on our own, we were attached to Neptune Township—ugh!

And they have no parking problems in Allenhurst with a population of about 500 people. They have a nice mixture of architectural types.


From the Roaring Twenties it’s Frank Munn:
