Homes in Ocean Grove
What started out in 1869 as a Victorian-era camp meeting site has become one of the Jersey Shore's finest year-round seaside resorts. Known as "The Jewel of the Jersey Shore," Ocean Grove has the highest concentration of authentic Victorian architecture in the country. This national historic treasure offers one square mile of natural beauty, including pristine beaches, tree-lined streets, serene boardwalk and parks, music & lecture programs, unique eateries, magnificent Inns, and a quaint shopping district.
Ocean Grove is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) located within Neptune Township, Monmouth County,New Jersey, United States. It had a population of 3,342 at the 2010 United States Census. It is located on the Atlantic Ocean's Jersey Shore, between Asbury Park to the north and Bradley Beach to the south. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Ocean Grove is noted for its abundant examples of Victorian architecture.
Ocean Grove was founded in 1869 as an outgrowth of the camp meeting movement in the United States, when a group of Methodistclergymen, led by William B. Osborn and Ellwood H. Stokes, formed the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association to develop and operate a summer camp meeting site on the New Jersey seashore. By the early 20th century, the popular Christian meeting ground became known as the "Queen of Religious Resorts." The community's land is still owned by the camp meeting association and leased to individual homeowners and businesses. Ocean Grove remains the longest-active camp meeting site in the United States.
Located along the beach, Ocean Grove is strategically situated at the geographic center of the Jersey Shore with Sandy Hook to the north and Atlantic City to the south, and all of the Shore's attractions within easy access. Only an hour’s drive from Manhattan (to the north) and Philadelphia (to the south), Ocean Grove is a weekend, summer, and year-round destination for international travelers. All are drawn to all it has to offer.
Summertime in Ocean Grove is filled with arts and craft shows, giant flea markets, guided historical walking tours, house tours, performances by famous named artists at the legendary Great Auditorium and much more. Having expanded into a town for all seasons, Ocean Grove now holds events year round to celebrate the uniqueness of this Victorian town, such as The Victorian House Tour in December, Chocolate Lovers Weekend in February, and the Garden State Film Festival in April. A stroll along Main Avenue anytime of the year is a rich reminder of Victorian life with its many quaint gift shops and antique stores.
