Be sure to take advantage of this informative 90' walking tour of the town which will allow entry into its most important buildings. The narration helps you to understand the reason for the town's existence. Ocean Grove has a respect and is supportive of the varied religions and beliefs. Everyone is welcome; so the docent informed us. Tours are given on Wednesday and Friday afternoons at 1pm and on Saturdays at 11am at a cost of $6 per person. The tour is interesting and provides you with the history of the Camp Meeting Association from its beginning to present day. Meet them at Historical Society a few minutes before the tour. There is an exhibition downstairs with memorabilia and photos of many important past visitors to the Great Auditorium.Reservations are required; there were 18 people in our tour. Surprisingly many had been to Ocean Grove before but had not taken the delightful tour.
