CLARK'S LANDING, Point Pleasant, NJ – 1925
Clark's Landing was established in 1872 by Roderick A. Clark, who started the business as a boat builder. Clark's Landing gradually evolved into a popular boating and fishing spot along the Manasquan River. In the early part of the twentieth century, Clark's Landing became a popular shore destination for its many attractions, from picnicking and dances to sailboat races, fishing and crabbing. At the time, Clark's Landing boasted a dance floor, a carousel, and even a steam organ. In the mid-1970s, condominiums were built that took up a large portion of the original property and today, Clarks Landing is operating as a modern marina and restaurant.
