Synopsis

This lavishly illustrated book explores the beautifully decorated homes, cottages, and hotels of New Jersey's historic Ocean Grove. This charming little seaside hamlet has been listed by the National Register of Historic Places as the richest concentration of Victorian architecture in the nation, and this book helps to illustrate why. One avenue after another, uncover the wealth of lovingly preserved homes that make up this still-active Methodist revival camp town. Picket fences and rose privets frame absolutely lovely homes, dripping with preserved wooden scrollwork, carefully highlighted in eye-catching colors, most of them historically accurate. The town, and this book, are treasures for all who love Victorian architecture and seaside charm. It is the perfect souvenir for anyone who has visited, and attempted to take in the whole of "God's Square Mile" during a brief stay. This book will allow you to linger.
