Emails - Township of Ocean Historical Museum - The Township of Ocean Historical Museum occupies Eden Woolley House. The Eden Woolley House, circa 1747, is one of the few 18th Century Homes surviving in Ocean Township. It was saved from destruction in 2005 and moved 1,000 feet east to its present location in Joe Palaia Park. It has been historically restored and open to the public to tell the story of Ocean Township and its surrounding communities.
