Cedar Bridge Tavern Ocean County Historic Site

200 Old Halfway Road, Barnegat, NJ 08005

The tavern is a fully restored museum, and the site encompasses 291 acres with a 3.5-mile walking trail and public programming held throughout the year including an annual commemoration of the Affair at Cedar Bridge held each December. The existing tavern building dates back to c. 1816 and retains the oldest standing bar in New Jersey. Cedar Bridge Tavern is a gateway to learn about the post-industrial forests of the New Jersey Pine Barrens and 19th-century farmsteads, taverns, consumerism, entertainment, and foodways in the region.
