This map of Asbury Park, New Jersey was created in 1881 by Beck & Pauli lithographers, a team of prominent 19th century map makers. The map shows a bird’s eye view of Asbury Park as it used to be, including street names and old landmarks. A notation on the map title reads “The site of Asbury Park in 1869 was a wilderness and a barren sand waste, in 1880 it was assessed $950,000.”
Landmarks on the map include the Coleman House, Library Building, Educational Hall, Public School, Military Academy, New Jersey Central Railroad Station, Tabernacle Ocean Grove, multiple churches, and a drawing of a scene showing “tent life in Ocean Grove”.
