About Lakehurst NJ

Lakehurst, New Jersey, the "Airship Capital of the World", home of the first international airport in the United States, an early winter resort, an old railroad capital, and a community where "Living is Better"

The Borough of Lakehurst was incorporated in 1921. Prior to that, it was the Village of Manchester.

Home of Federal Forge during the Revolutionary War, this area quickly became an early industrial center with a large rope factory, railroad shops, and many local businesses. In 1850, Manchester (Lakehurst) nearly became the County Seat of Ocean County.

In the late 19th century and early 20th century, Lakehurst was known as a winter resort. People traveled from New York and northern New Jersey to the five towers of the stately Pine Tree Inn, which was a large resort hotel.

Early writings said that Lakehurst in the winter had a climate much like that of Norfolk, Virginia, and they talked about the clear fresh smell of the pine air to refresh one's soul.

Today, as in the past, the walk along lovely Lake Horicon is a real treat. The fall leaves are especially pretty, but the lake is nice in all seasons.
