Getting to Know Wertheim's Corner, NJ

The personal injury attorneys in Wertheim's Corner, NJ, at Garden State Justice Group would like to share some of the community's highlights.

Wertheim's Corner

The area is situated at the intersection of Route 35 and Deal Road within Ocean Township in Ocean County, New Jersey. The northeast section of the community sits in Joe Palaia Park. Poplar Brook flows across the northern section as the Harvey Brook flows along its southern border. Some of the surrounding communities include Elberon, Deal Park, West Deal, and Wayside. 


Around 1737, Quaker Baptists settled in the area, along with them was Abraham Weair. Even as the colony moved away from the area around 1748, Weair remained. He had established a sawmill and become a prominent member of the neighborhood. 

Blimps were known to patrol the area in search of German U-boats during World War II. The U-boat periscopes were spotted by local fishermen just off the shore. Many troops were stationed at the Bayview Hotel as a precaution. 

During the war, many German Jews fled Germany in search of freedom from the fatal persecutions they faced in their home country. Among these was the Wertheim family. Guenther Wertheim, the grandson of Abraham Wertheim that owned a well-known retail store in Germany, was one that settled into the area in New Jersey. 


The area is home to the Ocean Township Historical Museum located on Deal Road. The building, also known as the Eden Woolley House, was built in the 1700s by Thomas Woolley. Eden Woolley inherited the property in 1835, and in 1849, he became the first elected Councilman in the township. The historical structure was moved to its current location in 2005 and serves as a museum and library that was founded in 1984.
