Significance: Bradley Beach was conceived in the 1870s by James A Bradley who hoped to extend the temperance and religious conviction found in Ocean Grove directly to the north. Although Bradley's religious ideals never took hold, the resort did develop into a democratic family-style community-- an alternative to the nearby elite resorts such as Deal or Allenhurst.
