Significance: Forked River was established in the mid 18th century and 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. Forked River rivaled neighboring Waretown and Barnegat for the title of best fishing and gunning grounds, as well as supported various industries, including saltworks, sawmills, iron production, game farms, charcoal production and mercantile trade.
