In 1847 there were four homes in the main village area, and in 1875 the town was called Parkerville. The earliest residents were mostly farmers, fishermen, and merchants.
Now it is a bustling town with shops, restaurants, and a commuter train station. It has never lost its small town feel and the residents that live here love it. Historic and charming, Little Silver boasts a fabulous gourmet food and plant market that opened in the 1920's, Sickel's market - now a mini department store, where you are bound to bump into friends and neighbors.
Multiple parks and hiking trails are favorite past times. There are two schools Point Rd and Markham Place. Point Rd is a past finalist in a national best schools competition.
Red Bank Regional is the high school for Little Silver. Its well regarded arts and drama program is coveted by other town's residents.
The town's great train station has lots of parking for the NYC commuters and even a Rook coffee shop, for those early mornings.
Prices in Little Silver vary from the small cape cod starter homes and the townhouses in the $300'000s to the larger estates and waterfront homes in the $4/5M+.
