Significance: Barnegat was first settled in the mid 18th century by Quakers. Beyond its early religious history, Barnegut is representative of the typical bay town, often referred to as the "Barnegat Bay resorts." The villages fronting the bay were established communities relying on the products of forest trade and sea long before the railroad brought resort trade. While rivaling neighboring Forked River and Waretown in fishing and gunning, as well as supported various industries, Barnegat is most renowned for its shipbuilding industry, and production of the "Barnegat sneak-box."
