From very humble beginnings, this small but charming borough has evolved into one of the New Jersey Shore's most vibrant business and residential communities. While Spring Lake Heights now enjoys numerous modern facilities, the town still contains many visible links to its unique past. This book explores these links and offers readers insight into various personalities, socio-economic factors, and local lore that have helped to shape the identity of this community. It includes an Irish pub that was also a brewery and stage coach stop in the late 1800s; an inn that once doubled as a brothel; a tea room once home to an international mail fraud ring; an historic cemetery and church; and a beautiful country club that once frequently hosted Richard Nixon.
