Significance: Point Pleasant's strategic railroad location at the junction of the major New York and Philadelphia lines, made it the ideal location for resort development. Prior to its resort development, Point Pleasant was an established commercial community, supporting fishing, ship building and sawmill industries. Point Pleasant and Point Pleasant Beach are among the handful of places on the Jersey shore which have withstood changes in American life that have made other historic places obsolete or artificial.
