Welcome to Little Silver
This beautiful coastal community offers a relaxed pace
Located along the banks of the Shrewsbury River, just four miles from the Atlantic Ocean, Little Silver, surrounded by Fort Monmouth, Oceanport, Shrewsbury, Red Bank, Fair Haven, and Rumson, is a friendly suburb that is well known for its tight-knit community feel and relaxed pace.
Originally composed of wooded farmland and saltwater marshes, resort hotels began to spring up on the scenic Little Silver Point peninsula in the early 1900s and the area became a prosperous and vibrant community shortly thereafter. Today, all farmland aside from Sickles Market
has been replaced by residential housing, and the area is filled with beautiful single-family homes situated on large parcels of land.
Prospect Avenue serves as Little Silver’s “Main Street” and there are plenty of charming shops located in the historic old houses that line Church Street. Specialty restaurants are abundant here and the suburb’s riverfront location makes it a popular destination for boaters and water sports enthusiasts.
There’s an outstanding school system in Little Silver and the beautifully restored railroad station located within the town has been designated a national landmark. More than 6,000 residents call this 2.8-square-mile town home.
