Summertime & the livin’ is easy!

Summertime brings us memories of the shore, summer vacations and no school, just what we like! We thought our blog post this week would be about the shore vacations the Keans would take.

Hamilton F. Kean & his wife Katherine bought a house in Elberon, New Jersey in the late 1890s and would summer there for several years.  Both of their sons had many happy summers there! They loved Elberon so much that when their original house burnt down, they built a new one to continue their summer vacationing until they sold that house in 1943.  Because we love good bathing suit photos, here are some great shots of them at their house and on the beach! Can you imagine wearing some of those bathing suits??

Even though they no longer had a shore residence, they still loved vacationing there.  Below are some fun beach shots of the last family who lived at Liberty Hall:
