Significance: Allenhurst and Loch Arbour are representative of the exclusive resorts that developed along the north New Jersey shore as a result of the coming of the railroad. During the 1860s, the completion of the Raritan and Delaware Railroad lines to New York and the Long Branch and Seashore lines along the beaches, signaled the opening of the shore to extensive resort growth.
