Stone Harbor, NJ is a beautiful beach resort community with small town charm. The borough has a quaint shopping district, impressive cuisine options, and ample water activities. Situated on the southern end of Seven Mile Island, the borough makes for an ideal summer retreat.
In the late 19th century, the development of Stone Harbor started. The resort destination was originally marked to wealthy Philadelphia residents that were looking for a second home along the NJ shore.
It was incorporated in 1914 from portions of Middle Township and later from Avalon. The borough received its name from an English sea captain named Stone who sought refuge from a storm in the area.
Just as it was in the late 1800’s, Stone Harbor today is one of the most affluent communities in the country. According to Forbes and Worth magazines, it is one of the richest towns in America. With the average single-family home being beautiful and well maintained, Stone Harbor is still an ideal location for your upscale, second home on the beach. Hutchinson’s local contractors have provided plumbing and HVAC services here for many years. We have created a trusted name for the families here to count on when they turn on their air conditioning in the summer, or when they need a certified plumber.
For those looking for adventure, Stone Harbor is an optimal spot. The beach resort offers residents and visitors great locations to participate in water activities, everything from fishing to jet skiing. The area known as “Nun’s Beach” is one of the Jersey Shore’s premiere surfing spots.
Stone Harbor is also home to the Wetlands Institute, a non-profit organization focusing on conservation and education. Started in 1969 by Herbert Mills, the executive director of the World Wildlife Fund, the institute sits on 6,000 acres of protected wetlands. The organization provides fun and interactive programs for tourists, schools groups, and families.
The Stone Harbor Bird Sanctuary, a National Natural Landmark comprised of 21 acres of maritime forest, wetlands, a spring-fed fresh water pond and meadow system, swarms with birds and butterflies. Residents think of the Sanctuary as a symbol of the character of this quiet town which respects the nature and wildlife that surrounds them while placing a premium on livability, aesthetics and serenity.
