Long Beach Island today is strikingly different from the island of a century ago. After decades of growth, there is astonishingly little physical evidence of the island’s early history. One can drive up and down the island and point out where everything once was.
What remains are artifacts, photographs, and the memories of those people who were here and who lived through these changing times. The LBIHA mission is to gather this information from old letters, diaries, memorabilia, interviews, artifacts, and especially photographs so that we can tell the complete story of this island and the eighteen miles of remarkable social history. Simply stated, the goal is to bring the past of LBI to life for all who visit. Established in 1976, the Museum was created by a group of enthusiastic volunteers with the support of local governments.
