History:

Bay Head was incorporated on June 15, 1886, from portions of Brick Township. The community was supposed to have been named "Bayhead," after the Bayhead Land Company that developed the area in the 1870s. A railroad sign posted in the 1880s labeled the station as "Bay Head," and the name stuck when the borough was incorporated in 1886.
