Getting to Know Wayside, NJ

The personal injury lawyers in Wayside, NJ, at NJ Injury Guys would like to present the following on the history of the community.


The unincorporated community of Wayside is located along the border of Ocean Township and Tinton Falls Township. The main roadways in the neighborhood are Wayside Road, Hope Road, and West Park Avenue. The community lies in the ZIP code 07712 and has an elevation of 128 feet. Some of the nearby communities include Wileys Corner, West Deal, Oakhurst, Whitesville, and Asbury. 


The area was purchased from the original settlers, the Lenni Lenape Native Americans, as far back as 1664. The area was called New Shrewsbury and was possibly founded by James Grover, the ironworks owner. Grover Ironworks was one of the oldest in the country. Colonel Lewis Morris purchased half of the company in addition to 3,540 acres. 

In July of 1950, the community seceded from Shrewsbury Township and, in addition to Tinton Falls, became the Borough of New Shrewsbury. This did not last long, and in 1975, they renamed the greater community the Borough of Tinton Falls to avoid postal confusion.


The Wayside Fire Company was established in 1919 and was first located at the corner of Green Groove Road and Wayside Road. Now the Fire Company is located on Volunteer Way, and they serve the greater area, including Ocean Township and Tinton Falls Township.
