Historic Walking Tour

4. The Railroad Area

Round House Railroad Shops - 1920s

Once the site of one of the largest shop areas of the Central Railroad of New Jersey, with a roundhouse, old locomotive sheds, and a passenger and freight station. While most of the railroad buildings were torn down in the 1940's, you can still see an occasional freight passing through the area. Lakehurst once ran 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week due to its railroad. You can see pictures and learn more at the museum.
