We have so much history all around us here at the Jersey Shore and often we don't even know about the stories behind these locations. It's great to take time to let you know about our history and maybe next time you see these locations you will say "hey I heard about this on 92.7 WOBM".

This time around I want to give you the background on the former Town Hall building in beautiful Downtown Toms River. I took a stroll over to the old building, which still looks great, and took some pictures to share with you.

I also did some digging to find out some of the stories about this historic building here in the County Seat of Ocean. The building is located on the corner of Washington Street and Robbins Street.

According to Downtown Toms River, the building is about 119 years old....circa 1902. The original building was a home built for John S. Holmes, a local sea captain. Later the home was purchased by local resident Henry Low, president of the First National Bank of Toms River. Over the years additions were made to the home before it became "Town Hall".
