In 1881 the Railroad came through and the borough was named around the same time. Mantoloking means “frog ground” in the Lenni-Lenape language. In 1883 the Mantoloking association was formed. In 1897 the Mantoloking Yacht Club was formed.

The Seashore Land Company and Seashore Improvement Company was the developer for the area. In 1884 the company built the Mantoloking Bridge, led by its Superintendent Captain John Arnold of Point Pleasant.
