Bay Head Municipal Court
Bay Head Municipal Court Lawyer
The Borough of Bay Head is situated on the Barnegat Peninsula, also known as Barnegat Bay Island, a long, narrow barrier island that separates Barnegat Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. Together with Mantoloking, Bay Head is widely considered to be part of the Jersey Shore’s “Gold Coast”. Bay Head was incorporated as a Borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on June 15, 1886, from portions of Brick Township.
The community was supposed to have been named “Bayhead” after the Bayhead Land Company that developed the area in the 1870s. However, a railroad sign posted in the 1880s labeled the station as “Bay Head,” and the name stuck and was retained when the borough was incorporated in 1886. The name also comes from the borough’s location, that is at the “head” of Barnegat Bay
