The Asbury Park Historical Society has launched a fundraising campaign to raise the necessary funds to finance their proposed purchase of the Stephen Crane House on 4th Ave. in the city.

Stephen Crane, the famous author who penned incredible American literature like The Red Badge of Courage, lived in the home from when he was 11 until he was about 20. He started to write when he was in Asbury Park, and one of his earliest works, The Black Riders was inspired by the beaches in Ocean Grove, according to the Asbury Park Historical Society website. The website says the Stephen Crane House is probably one of the oldest houses in Asbury Park.

It is not only an important part of Asbury Park history, but American History as well. Find out how you can help and read more about the Stephen Crane House and the proposed purchase at the Asbury Park Historical Society website.
