09/30/15 The Judge’s Shack

Posted: October 4, 2015 in Uncategorized

I went down to Island Beach State Park to check out the ocean prior to the big storm. If the sky is right, I usually make a stop at the Judge’s Shack. It’s amazing that this shack, which sits on the dunes right at the beach, has survived Sandy and several other hurricanes. It was built in Island Beach around 1911 and was moved to it’s current location in 1952. It’s called the Judge’s Shack because Judge Richard Hartshorne from Newark purchased the property in 1942 for $200.
