Throughout the 19th century, theatrical performers of the day often gathered and performed in Long Branch. First Lady Mary Lincoln visited in 1861, but it was in 1869 that Long Branch NJ had its first presidential visit by President Grant. The beach resort town was also visited by six additional presidents including Chester A. Arthur, James A. Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, Rutherford B. Hayes, William McKinley and Woodrow Wilson. Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park, a park near the beach, is named in honor of their visits. The Church of the Presidents is the only structure left in Long Branch associated with them.
