Join with us to Preserve Belmar’s History!

Belmar has an amazing history and is proud of the contribution residents have made to our town and our world.

The BHS members have accepted the task of restoring, preserving and acquiring Belmar sites and materials.

For example, through the work of the BHPC, the World War I Doughboy statue at Doughboy Park and the World War II Monument on Main Street has been restored and the Malta Mast base on Ocean Avenue was repaired.

These initiatives were made possible by matching grants from the Monmouth County Historical Commission and the sale of personalized brick pavers..

Volunteers are serious about their work to preserve Belmar’s History — our commitment allows us to join with others who respect the past and look to the future of Belmar.

The BHS Holiday Party is just one annual celebration to end the year and begin an exciting new year.  At this year’s party, the group broke out in the song, ‘WE AIN’T GOT A LOT OF MONEY…”  emphasizing the ‘side-by-side’ feeling of camaraderie among BHS members.
