Significance: Belmar and South Belmar developed as a result of the general speculative development of the New Jersey short which became possible in the late 19th century with the coming of the railroad. Beyond its resort history, Belmar is significant in communications history for the experimental transatlantic radio complex built in 1913 by the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company. Taken over by the U. S Army in 1941, the site gained further significance in modern communications history as the birthplace of radar.
