Junction with US 1–Woodbridge–Perth Amboy–Freehold–Lakewood–Toms River–Tuckerton–Cape May; US 9,

MANAHAWKIN, 69 miles (25 alt., 825 pop.), is on the site of an Indian village of the same name (Indian, good corn land). MANAHAWKIN LAKE (R) is a cheerful foreground for this pleasant village, gateway to Long Beach Island on the ocean. The old BAPTIST CHURCH (R), built in 1758, has served many denominations; the small plain white wooden building has had Victorian additions of two narrow Gothic windows, a circular window in the gable, and a new wide vestibule with a narrow glass door, to belie its actual age. The small steeple is surrounded by a plain low balustrade. The village was the boyhood home of William Newell, Governor of New Jersey (1857-60) and of the Indian Territory (1880). Newell was also the originator of the U. S. Life Saving Service (see Tour 36).

At Manahawkin is the junction with State S40 (see Tour 35).
