There’s No Chapel In The World Like This One In New Jersey

The Jersey Shore has been a popular summer resort destination for hundreds of years. Every town along our coast has a unique history, and that rings especially true for Long Branch. The town has served as a shore resort since the late 1700s, and was a major center of arts and culture in the mid 1800s. An East Coast version of Hollywood, the town attracted some of the nation’s most popular performers. Long Branch also attracted other notable guests looking to enjoy the theater and the town’s beautiful beaches.

To learn more about this unique chapel, its history, and the restoration efforts surrounding it, visit churchofthepresidents.org. A treasured piece of New Jersey’s past, it would be spectacular to see this structure restored.
