Lacey's 150th Year at a Glance

Welcome to Our Lacey Township Sesquicentennial Celebration 2021

It is my distinct and absolute pleasure to welcome you to Lacey Township! Since our founding in 1871,

Lacey Township has been offering families a welcomed retreat to call home. As residents, we all know of

the many reasons that we call Lacey home. Our beautiful parks, our rich culture and great schools but this

year in particular we celebrate a landmark birthday – Our 150th

From our founding in 1871 through to today, we are indeed the best kept secret in Ocean County. We

offer all the amenities of fine living with much less traffic than our neighbors to the north! From our

school children to our Senior Citizens, an eclectic array of people are proud to call Lacey home and

during our 150th

Anniversary Celebration we will celebrate a different aspect or area of our town and it's

people that make this a very special place to live. Each month, we will celebrate the theme of our new

town moniker made especially for our 150th

- “Lacey Township, Live it, Love it, Be a part of it!”

From the time when Brigadier General John Lacey fought for America's freedom in the Revolutionary

War through to the many sacrifices that our military families make to this day, we celebrate you. We

celebrate our rich history and we celebrate Lacey Township. So please, raise your hands, raise a glass and

toast the Lacey Lifestyle.
