Most of the southern end of the Island below Beach Haven is called Holgate. South Beach Haven and Beach Haven Inlet are usually considered smaller subdivisions of this community. Holgate is controlled by Long Beach Township.

Holgate is a quiet community where vacationers enjoy a short walk to the beach. Most own their own summer cottage or come to stay in one of the many motels. There is even a trailer-park in the area.

The southern end of Long Beach Island below Holgate and Beach Haven Inlet is home to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. This two and one-half mile stretch of beach and marshland is closed to visitors during the summer season to protect the animals and environment.

However, many people enjoy the natural surroundings during the late Fall through early Spring.

My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all. ~ John Lennon

Shot of the Hoover Dam  ... During A Trip Out West .... What A Site !

 

Hoover Dam, once known as Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada. It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression and was dedicated on September 30, 1935, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Its construction was the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers, and cost over one hundred lives. The dam was controversially named after President Herbert Hoover.
