The borough of Lavallette, New Jersey is situated on the Barnegat Peninsula, a long peninsula that separates Barnegat Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. The Ocean County borough was incorporated in 1887, and named for Elie A.F. La Vallette, one of the first rear admirals appointed in the U.S. Navy when President Abraham Lincoln created the rank in 1862, and the father of Albert T. Lavallette, a co-founder of the borough.
