About Lakehurst, New Jersey
Home to about 2600 people, the Borough of Lakehurst in north-central Ocean County is small in size but rich in history. First gaining fame as a winter resort in the late 1800s, Lakehurst later became known as the "Airship Capital of the World" as the nearby Lakehurst Naval Air Station was a popular landing spot for airships and blimps (including the famed Hindenburg, which made regular trips to Lakehurst before its infamous fiery crash at the base in 1937).
