Farley exhibited paintings of Barnegat, New Jersey, at the Pennsylvania Academy in 1912, 1913, 1914, 1925, and 1921. Barnegat is an historic and picturesque area located on the northern end of Long Beach Island. It was named after Barnegat Inlet, which was first sighted by Henry Hudson in 1609. The Barnegat City Improvement Company was formed in 1881 for the purpose of developing the area for recreation and tourism. The city seceded from Long Beach Township in 1904 and became independent. The community elected to associate itself more closely with its landmark lighthouse in 1948 by changing its name from Barnegat City to Barnegat Light.
