Ocean Grove NJ
Prior to an important court decision on church-state separation. From Wikpedia: "Ocean Grove retained its independence until a court ruling in 1981 nullified the Camp Meeting Association’s municipal authority. At that time, Ocean Grove became part of Neptune Township, in Monmouth County, New Jersey. The Camp Meeting still owns all the land in town and leases it to homeowners and businesses for 99-year renewable terms. The Camp Meeting Association currently keeps its beach closed on Sunday mornings between 8:30 am and 12:30 pm and Ocean Grove is still dry, that is, the sale of all alcoholic beverages is prohibited." Ironically, the successful challenge to Ocean Grove's special status as a one square mile theocracy was initiated by a man who claimed the OG police were an agency of a religious group & had no right to issue him a ticket for drunk driving. The court agreed.
