Ocean County Historical Museum


The Elizabeth Sculthorp Force House, a vernacular Victorian house, built in the mid-1880s, was once the residence of a sea captain and then later of an innovative educator and social reformer. Featured are Native American implements, period furnishings, artifacts, local industries, artworks and photographs. The House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the State Register of Historic Places, and the New Jersey Women’s Heritage Trail.

The Richard L. Strickler Research Center, a contemporary addition to the house, is an extensive repository for a library of books, maps, and historical and genealogical records that provide students, researchers, genealogists, and history enthusiasts with the essential resources necessary for telling the stories of Ocean County.
