Seaside Heights tells the history of a timeless seashore resort community located on a barrier island nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Barnegat Bay. The 224-acre town was settled by residents of Philadelphia and Camden, who purchased white-sand lots to escape city life for the brisk ocean breezes and tranquility that Seaside Heights offered prior to World War II. Seaside Heights uses the scenes captured in vintage postcards, some of them very rare, as a study of the changes that have occurred in the town since its incorporation in 1913.

This beloved shore town of Seaside Heights was battered by Superstorm Sandy in October 2012, and one year later, in 2013, it suffered a major fire that destroyed the south end of the boardwalk. Notwithstanding these challenges, recovery is strong and the future of Seaside Heights grows brighter as each day passes. The boardwalk was re-built stronger than the one that Sandy splintered and rises slowly from the ashes of the horrific fire. After Governor Chris Christie visited the site of the destruction, he said, "We'll rebuild it." However, for those who recall the way things were, it won't be the same, as many of the iconic structures that made it what it was are now gone and washed into the ocean. With characteristic resilience and strength, Seaside Heights did rebuild, and came back stronger. "Confronting a storm is like fighting God. All the powers in the universe seem to be against you and in an extraordinary way, your irrelevance is at the same time both humbling and exalting."--Francoise LeGrande, The Quotable Sailor

The funeral service of an old friend, co-worker and college roommate is the back drop of a forty year mystery. Former Seaside Heights Lifeguard and Ocean County Prosecutors Office Investigator, Bobby Jamison passes away at his new home in southern Alabama, as he was approaching his mid-sixties. At the memorial service in Seaside Park, New Jersey, old colleagues gather to celebrate his life. The collages and arrays of photographs and memorabilia throughout the room draw those mourners back to the days many years earlier when one of their own died under suspicious circumstances involving Jamison’s widow. Bobby’s death and the celebration of his life by those mourners finally brings a belated close to the summer of 1968. This is a tragic love story spanning decades, when the lives of each of the old friends were greatly changed due to those few years in the mid to late 1960’s. The war in Vietnam, the social unrest, the civil rights movement and the heartbreaking, world changing events of that time all play a role in the ultimate outcome of the lives of each of those lifeguards.

Following the great fire of 1912 through the Daddy Train era, Seaside grew as a holiday and summer resort. The opening of the Oregon Coast Highway from Astoria to California in the late 1920s and of Wolf Creek Highway (Sunset Highway) in the late 1930s made Seaside accessible from Portland by automobile. Reconstruction of the boardwalk, the era of the big bands, saltwater swimming pools, and lumber riots kept Seaside in the news. Seaside survived the crash of the stock market, and World War II brought about an era of reconstruction, along with the Miss Oregon pageant. Seaside: 19201950 documents the citys growth and the people and businesses that helped it flourish.
