The American writer Stephen Crane (1871-1900), author of The Red Badge of Courage and numerous short stories, lived in this modest home with his thirteen siblings as a youth.

Although Crane lived to be only 28 years old, he was a prolific essayist, poet, short story writer, novelist, and war correspondent. After he died in Germany in 1900, Crane was buried in Hillside, NJ.

Today, the Stephen Crane House is a cultural hub for Asbury Park, hosting readings, film screenings, theatrical performances, and more.
