Significance: The Harvey Cedars is the last surviving late 19th century hotel on Long Beach Island. Before significant enlargement in 1887, the building served as sportsmen's and seamen's lodge; from 1921-1935, the building operated as a Y.W.C.A. camp, and as a Bible Conference Center since 1941. Harvey Cedars does not seem to have operated for long as comfortable resort hotel-- perhaps 1887-1903. The building has accommodated different generations of recreational uses at the shore, unlike many similar structures, has survived these changes.
