    I just heard this yesterday and wanted to know if anyone could confirm this please. Was there a farm on the EAST side of Ocean Avenue in Monmouth Beach that was about 4 miles long in the late 1800s? If yes, do you have any info I can read up on it more or any website that talks about this? Thanks.

    More than likely it was the kitchen gardens for large families tended by the help.

    I just discovered through newspaper clippings that my Great Grandfather (John H Sutphen) was one of the councilmen and architects in early 1900 in Long Branch. I also found out his son my Grandfather (J. Woodward Sutphen) was a ranked competitive speed skater. I am wondering where I may find photographs from this time. I may travel out from Arizona as I am very interested. Thank you.
