This was a nice little place. I think it might be more exciting for children, but as with everything we do, we enjoyed what it had to offer. The price was ok, not for what they had to see, but to know it keeps it preserved for future generations.
This is such a great place to stroll through any time. There is so much to see. Plus the annual events are a real treat! Sounds Exciting Summer Concerts, Cider Days, Lakewood Lights and more. What a wonderful place. I hope you get a chance to explore it.
The Lakewood Heritage Center is like a little walking history. Part of a beautiful park near Belmar, you can walk along a virtual Colfax Avenue, like you would walk down "memory lane".

Lakewood has taken the initiative to acquire and restore early buildings from the area. The collections of builidings are both business and homes. this is an interesting colllection.
