    A 44-foot, 19th century wooden boat was found under the floorboards when bungalows along 5th street got raised onto pilings. According to the Asbury Park Press, the boat is 12-feet wide and is made out of 3-inch thick wooden planks held together with 18-inch nails. There even might be a sunken coal barge buried underneath the wooden frame. Construction was halted and the Historical Society of Highlands was contacted.

    It is believed the boat was pulled over the sunken coal barge to help protect a house from the elements during a storm. The storm severely damaged the boat and with the sail gone, owners just left it there. The bungalows were built in 1920.

    Highlands basically has two sections, the area downtown near the Shrewsbury River and the other built high in the hills. Some of the homes and condos located on the bluff have great ocean views. The town is approximately one square mile and the highest point on the east coast.

    The two restaurants with the best ocean and river views are Bahr’s that has been in the same location since 1917 and the Inlet Cafe. If you prefer fine dining, you can find that only seven minutes away in Rumson and Sea Bright. You can walk to the beach or take the ferry to NYC in forty minutes.
