A JEWEL IN NEW JERSEY
OCEAN GROVE is just a few miles from where we live and along the New Jersey shore line. This beautiful and quaint town is a National Historic shore community. In 1869 a group of spiritual leaders of the time formed the "Camp Meeting Association" and resumed the task of of forming and incorporating the town of Ocean Grove. With its Victorian architecture one cannot help but bask in its old charm and beauty. In the middle of this tiny town and amongst the colorful Victorian and tent houses stands the majestic "Great Auditorium". With its grandiose structure many celebrated preachers have addressed the congregation from its pulpit. Today it is not only a beach town but a jewel in our Jersey shore.
