Keansburg Borough was officially formed in 1917. The first Mayor was William W. Ramsay, who held two terms. Sand from the Raritan Bay was dredged out to make for solid ground upon which to build the foundation for the town. Carr Avenue was carved out as the first street through the town.
The town was traditionally known for steamboat manufacturing. This era came to a halt in 1962 when a hurricane destroyed the pier. Keansburg then became known as largely a summer vacation stop, boasting beaches, hotels, restaurants, the boardwalk and an amusement park. Over 10,000 people call Keansburg home. The town is located on the Raritan Bay, adjacent to Middletown, which has its own municipal court.
