Monmouth: Perfect for Presidents

Looking forward to a day off from school or work on Feb. 20? We welcome Presidents Day every year, but don’t forget to celebrate our past commanders in chief for their service.



Looking forward to a day off from school or work on Feb. 20? We welcome Presidents Day every year, but don’t forget to celebrate our past commanders in chief for their service. Test your knowledge on some U.S. presidents who visited and made their marks in Monmouth County:

Seven sitting U.S Presidents have vacationed in Long Branch, including Ulysses S. Grant, who in 1869 declared the town the nation’s “Summer Capital.”

Several weeks after he was shot in Washington, D.C., President James Garfield succumbed to injuries while staying in the Elberon section of Long Branch in 1881.

The Borough of Roosevelt was created and renamed after Franklin D. Roosevelt (originally Jersey Homesteads) during the Great Depression as part of the New Deal.

Dwight D. Eisenhower would spend summers in Monmouth visiting friends in towns like Fair Haven and Shrewsbury.

Many presidential candidates have campaigned in Monmouth. Richard Nixon, John F. Kennedy and George H.W. Bush, among others, have stopped in places like Monmouth Park, the Homestead Restaurant in Spring Lake and the Monmouth Shopping Center in Eatontown.
