Significance: Ocean Grove, the first religious resort located on the Jersey shore, was founded in the 1860s during the post Civil War revival of Christian enthusiasm for rustic retreats. Methodist ministers chose land only six miles south of famous Long Branch, which offered the combined benefits of healthful seashore and sheltering pine trees.
