Museums don’t entomb the past they keep the past alive!
The Borough of Lakehurst Historical Society maintains a collection of historical artifacts, books, pictures and documents which provide a record of a rich history which will help to educate those who wish to learn about an un know part of local lore. Charred remnants of the dirigible Hindenburg, which burned and then crashed here on May 6th, 1937, and items from the Navy’s rigid airship program are always popular items to see when you visit the Society’s Museum. The Museum is located at 300 Center Street, in the oldest Roman Catholic Church in Ocean County, Old St. John’s Church it was built in 1874 by Irish Railroad workers. Old Church items are on display are beautiful to see. Come see the beautiful stained glass windows and Station’s of the Cross. An old cemetery surrounds the Museum. The Museum opened in July, 1993 with nearly 1,000 people in attendance. People from many states and several foreign countries have come to see the items on display. It’s managed by all volunteer workers. The Museum also has an old jail cell, Fire Department memorabilia, items and furnishings from the Pine Tree Inn, original paintings and many other items relating to Lakehurst’s past as a winter resort, early industrial community, and as the “Airship Capital of the World”. A small research area and library are also available to help people begin their journey through local history. A beautiful Christmas display of old toys, as well as a number of seasonal and changing displays make the Museum a special place to return to several times a year.
