About this title


Brielle's Manasquan River island provided inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, but the town was relatively isolated until 1919. When the Manasquan inlet
was created, it transformed the town into the preeminent hub for recreational fishing and a booming resort destination.
The earliest European settlers first harvested salt at Union Landing, and, later, resort developers found it reminiscent of their favorite Dutch seaside town and gave it its current moniker. From its Native American origins to the dubious rum-running of the Prohibition era, the town has a rich and colorful history. Raymond F. Shea weaves a rich tapestry of
facts, anecdotes and charming stories that displays the story of a town that exchanged its fledgling, farm-town status for a reputation as one of America's civic gems.

The Union Landing Historical Society, formed in 1973, includes members from New Jersey and all over the United States with a common interest in learning about, researching, and preserving the history of the Borough of Brielle. The Society has completed a restoration and documentation of the Osborn Family Burial Ground, established a 9-11 Memorial, and placed markers at historical sites in Brielle. The Society also awards an annual scholarship for excellence in history and sponsors historical programs open to the public at its general membership meetings.
Raymond F. Shea, the main author for this book, is currently the President of the Union Landing Historical Society and chairman of the Society's book committee. He has been actively involved with the society since 2001 and served as the editor of the Arcadia book on Brielle (Images of America).
