Beaton Point to Remain In Its Natural State

Site was preserved with township, county funds

The Beaton Point tract on the Manasquan River will remain the way it is.

The 9.6 acre peninsula off Beverly Beach Road in the township's Herbertsville section was preserved after the township and county split the $1,257,500 price of the property.

Officials say the site, which was , will not be developed or improved. Rather, it will remain in its natural state.

Mayor Stephen C. Acropolis said that the unspoiled plot of land was once under consideration for six or seven homes, but an outcry from residents caused the township to investigate its purchase and preservation.

"At one time, there was a plan to build homes there," he said. "Thankfully, the plan never came to fruition and we were able to work with the county freeholders to preserve this land."

Acropolis described the area as "one of the most remarkable undeveloped waterfront tracts of land in Brick Township."

I live in this section and last Tuesday I noticed the sign was on the land about 8am and on returning around 10:30 am the sign was missing !!!!! Where did it go ? I called the police Dept. and they said they would call the town to see if they had removed it, but I think someone else had taken it. If thats the case how petty can that be.

The wonderful person who sold the piece of property wanted the name to be Beaton Point the old sign read Beaton Tract. I was told new sign will be up this week.

I also thought someone stole it. We always called it the Peninsula, since there is a creek or stream on two sides, which join together at the river. But I've only been here 52 years.
