Overview

Keyport: From Plantation to Center of Commerce and Industry by Jack Jeandron

Emerging from the shores of the Raritan Bay, Keyport's roots trace back to the Kearney family's plantation and its vital role during Revolutionary times. Although just 1.4 square miles in size, it encompasses shipbuilding, oyster farming, a trolley network, and an Aeromarine industry within a rich and influential history. Beyond these are the abundant and captivating tales of catastrophic fires and the vaunted Prohibition days providing a colorful framework of life in this coastline community.
