Little Silver History

Established by a Kings Land Grant in 1663, Little Silver witnessed its first settlements in 1667. It was originally inhabited by the Navesink Native Americans. An Act of the New Jersey Legislature separated Little Silver from Shrewsbury Township and incorporated it as its own borough in 1923. Early settlers Joseph and Peter Parker named their holdings Little Silver in honor of their father’s estate in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. The earliest residents of Little Silver were European merchants, fishermen and farmers.
