The Ocean County Compendium of  History
Your Subtitle text

Island Heights

The following photographic essay was culled from the photo archives maintained by the Island Heights Cultural & Heritage Association at the Cottage Museum located at 105 Simpson Avenue, Island Heights, New Jersey.

The IHC&HA Executive Board recently voted to allow the Compendium to digitize and help
organize their very unique collection, and share those archives with the visitors of the OCCH.

The OCCH would like to thank the
IHC&HA Board and its General Membership for their trust and foresight.

Please visit the Cottage Museum this coming April when it opens for the season.  Visits by appointment in the winter months.
