Beachwood is a borough in Ocean County, New Jersey. The community was formed in 1914, when lots were offered, as a premium, to new subscribers to the New York Tribune. Prospective buyers were taken by train and automobile to select their lots among the 1,763 available acres. By 1915, a club house, yacht club, pier, bathhouse, railroad station, and a 37-room lodge were built, along with ninety-three cottages. In 1917, Beachwood was incorporated and, by 1919, its population was approximately ten thousand.
