“History Buffs Take Note! Antique Lovers Need To See This!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Inside this beautiful, light green house lives memories, artifacts, & pieces of Ocean County/New Jersey history. The staff/volunteers are knowledgeable, kind, & tell wonderful stories of times past. You must check out their Antiques Faire in August!

Great little place to spend a couple of hours to learn about the history of Ocean County. Also to learn about how the towns came about and the people who started them.

“History Alive in Toms River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

They've truly done a wonderful job at the Ocean County Historical Society. The displays are great and if you're looking for something in particular on a local subject, they most likely have it.
