Significance: Waretown was established as a religious community by the Rogerine Baptists in the early 18th century. Beyond its early religious history, Waretown 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. Waretown rivaled neighboring Forked River and Barnegat for the title of best fishing and gunning grounds, as well as supported various industries including shipbuilding, cranberry farming and a grist mill.
