Mini Jerusalem - Ocean Grove

When Ocean Grove was first established as a Methodist Camp Meeting ground- an " Eden by the Sea," a large attraction was the model of Jerusalem built by a local member of the community.
It was later covered with a protective roofed structure but eventually was lost to age and Jersey Shore weather.
This was an illustrator's depiction of mini Jerusalem in the late 1880s.

    Thanks, great blog from what i can see! I'm in the Grove and absolutely love it! Having grown up in Wildwood I have not seen a beach as beautiful in NJ but the charm here is unmatched.
