The Museum’s mini--‐exhibit on the history of Asbury Park High School, featuring vintage photos, school newspapers, yearbooks, and memorabilia. The story of the school is a fitting complement to the Museum’s major exhibit: “Asbury Park: The History of a Jersey Gem,” currently on display. Whether Asbury alums (as many from the Township of Ocean were, as we were a sending district until the opening of Ocean Township High School in 1965) or newcomers to the area, guests will find the facts, photos, and artifacts of both exhibits well worth the visit. More

 The History of a Jersey Gem

Artifacts and photos tell the story of the city from its beginning in 1870 as the brainchild of businessman and avid Methodist James Bradley to its current rebirth. The centerpiece of the exhibit is a full-size carousel animal—a sea dragon, hand carved by folk artist George Hoffman. More.
