Lakehurst - Lakehurst Historical Society Museum

300 Center Street

The Borough of Lakehurst Historical Museum is housed in the oldest Roman Catholic Church in Ocean County. Old St. John's Church was established in 1874. The museum was opened in 1993. The old jail cell and the replica of the Jersey Devil are the children's favorites. Many pictures and artifacts depict the busy railroad era with a running model of the Blue Comet train. The Hindenberg disaster is the highlight of the museum, with pictures, newspapers, books an artifacts telling of this historic event. The museum also showcases a beautiful music box dated 1864 and a gramophone from 1900.

If you would like a tour, you must contact them by email only at least 2 weeks in advance. This information is not readily available on their website, so don't make a special trip!

I enjoyed the museum and the church part of the tour. The long, drawn out explanation outside at the actual crash site of the Hindenburg, I could have skipped. The museum is very nice with great displays.
