With desirable beach communities and nearby commuter-friendly towns, Monmouth County continues to attract new residents, while nostalgic memories of bygone landmarks, forgotten businesses and more remain in the hearts of many. The Thoroughbred horses of Lincroft are gone, but the Brookdale Farm Historic District remains preserved. The Circus Drive-In in Wall maintained an idyllic 1950s ambience for more than a half century, drawing in families with the broad grin of its iconic clown roadside sign. Opera houses of the late nineteenth century were established from Asbury Park to Red Bank, entertaining the masses in an era before movies. New Jersey historian Randall Gabrielan takes readers on a journey of lost Monmouth County.
