Our History

The Woman’s Exchange of Monmouth County opened in 1934 as a depression-era means for women to sell their fine knitting, handmade children’s wear, and other creations.  In 1950, our gift shop moved from its original location in the rear of an electric store in Rumson to Church Street in Little Silver.  A new shop with over 900 feet of selling space was built at the Church Street site in 1985.
