Fair Haven: The Making of a Modern Town continues the detailed look into the history of this New Jersey community. In over 200 images, the author further explores the town’s development from the small seasonal community it once was to the suburban borough that it has become. The early town of Fair Haven was little more than a waterfronta passage between the neighboring towns of Red Bank and Rumson. As the town developed, churches, schools, shops, and traditional houses sprang up everywhere. Although the public places have been changed or replaced, many of the town’s early homes are well preserved.

These same aspects of Fair Haven life continue to appeal to visitors and new residents. Author Randall Gabrielan’s interest in and commitment to preserving the past is evident in Fair Haven: The Making of a Modern Town. His appreciation for the town and its history makes for an insightful presentation.
