Welcome to St. Leonard’s Tract
For those not familiar with St. Leonard’s Tract, it is an historic area, nestled by the beach on Absecon Island, in Ventnor City, New Jersey. Many of the homes are historic with interesting stories of their past inhabitants. Typically the homes are quite large, even mansions with glorious gardens surrounding them. It has a small town feel with an unrivaled camaraderie and a progressive neighborhood association, called St. Leonard’s Association. It is noteworthy that the houses in St. Leonard’s Tract were built prior to the establishment of zoning regulations and the residents created uniform deed restrictions to assure the unique character of the neighborhood would be preserved.
St. Leonard’s Association was established in 1921 to enforce these deed restrictions, preserve our historic neighborhood and for the betterment of the community. In addition, the Association also promotes friendship and goodwill among the residents and celebrates this unique and beautiful neighborhood by the sea.
