Significance: Today the towns of Towns of Sea Girt, Manasquan & Brielle blend into each other with little differentiation, though they were founded as three distinct communities. The effect of increased accessibility to the Jersey Shore in southern Monmouth County, made possible by the coming of the railroad in the 1870s-80s, is evident in the development of these three towns. Sea Girt and Brielle were both speculative resort developments, typical of the time, while Manasquan, already a year round community when the railroad arrived, was transformed by the new tourist market.
