Bronze plaque honors Mary Todd Lincoln in Long Branch


Long Branch Mayor, Adam Schneider, left, unveils a bronze plaque along Centennial Ave. in Pier Village marking the 150th anniversary of the visit in Long Branch of First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln, which put Long Branch on the map for the rich and famous and kicked off the city’s so-called Gilded Age. The project is a joint venture by the local historical society and the city to begin marking all the significant historical locations in the city. The bronze plaque marks the location of the Mansion House, one of the city’s long ago grand hotels. Monday, August 22, 2011.
