Lakehurst,

borough (1990 pop. 3,078), Ocean co., E central N.J.; inc. 1921. It is important as the site of the Lakehurst Naval Air Station (est. 1921). The Shenandoah (1923) was the first airship to use the station, and transatlantic airships made it their U.S. terminal from 1924. The burning of the Hindenburg, which took 36 lives, occurred there (May 6, 1937) as the hydrogen-filled German zeppelin was being moored. The base is now known as the Lakehurst Naval Air Engineering Station.
