Beachwood is a Borough in Ocean County, New Jersey. Its population at the 2010 census was 11,045. It was incorporated in 1917 from portions of Berkeley Township.
In December 2008, the Beachwood Historical Alliance was formally created from an idea presented to the borough council at their Dec. 3rd meeting. It is a currently-forming citizen-run non-profit organization set up in late 2008 to work with the Borough of Beachwood towards creation of an official town-run Preservation Commission for the purpose of recognizing, restoring and preserving the community’s origins and ongoing heritage held within its original structures and sites.
