“This Old House” designated Atlantic Highlands one of the ten “best places to buy an old house in the Northeast” – and, whether perched on a hilltop or nestled along the slopes of the Highlands, the inventory is large with over 250 existing building that is 100 years or older. Settled as a seaside retreat, the architectural style of the homes includes Colonial Revival, Shingle, Carpenter Gothic, Stick, and Queen Anne. Atlantic Highland’s thriving historical society is dedicated to publicizing and preserving the town’s physical heritage and has dubbed Atlantic Highlands the “Town of Towers” due to its dozens of Victorian houses and churches topped with towers. While porch-sitting also recalls an American era gone by, Atlantic Highlands’ Front Porch Club is a social organization for residents interested in bringing cohesion to the town and its vision for the future. A quaint, yet flourishing, main street with theaters, restaurants, lodging, and boutique shops leads to a tranquil cove on Raritan Bay. The municipal harbor there is the largest on the East Coast and is home to Monmouth County’s most desired commute, the Sea Streak ferry, with a 40-minute direct-ferry service to Manhattan. Nearby Mt. Mitchell is the highest natural elevation on the Atlantic seaboard, allowing unparalleled vistas, and is home to Monmouth County’s 9/11 Memorial.
