About Stafford NJ

Stafford Township includes Manahawkin, Cedar Run, Mayetta and much of Warren Grove. With large residential sections like Ocean Acres, Fawn Lakes, and Beach Haven West, it is southern Ocean County's fastest growing community. Stafford also leads all of the other towns in the county in environmental projects, including recycling and ordinances that prevent pollution and overdevelopment.

Stafford is also home to Southern Ocean County Hospital (SOCH), which has tripled in size since it first opened a little more than 20 years ago. The hospital now has two healthcare satellites in neighboring Lacey and Little Egg Harbor townships In addition, it is now flanked by a medical\professional zone of doctors' offices and laboratories, and two fine nursing and convalescent homes are located nearby.

Stafford's active historical society has completed restoration of its Railroad Museum in Heritage Park, and is busy collecting showcases and displays. Its current focus is to put heating and air conditioning in the Old Baptist Church Museum on Route 9. The historical society holds several events during the year to raise funds for its projects, including flea markets, a railroad festival and a Christmas tour. Each year in June, Stafford celebrates its heritage with Founders Day, which includes a dinner dance, parade, senior citizens luncheon, day-long picnic, entertainment and fireworks.
