Anglesea Railroad Historical Marker

Anglesea Railroad Historical Marker in North Wildwood, New Jersey
Over the past 7 years we've been following the New Jersey Historical Marker Trail all through the Garden State and documenting them here on the blog. Millions of people walk or drive by these markers every year and never give them a second thought. They're a great source of historic information and we're trying to bring some much needed attention to them.

While on a road trip through southern New Jersey we stumbled upon the Anglesea Railroad historical marker located in Anglesea, New Jersey. If you're unfamiliar with the area, Anglesea is a small borough located on the northern tip of the Wildwood island.

Anglesea Railroad 

The stone block below marks the original terminus of the Anglesea Railroad, as shown on a map field with the Secretary of State linked with the West Jersey Railroad at a point 2.6 miles south of Cape May Court House Station, and eventually ran from this point southwest to Holly Beach Borough.

By: Borough of Anglesea

Location: You'll find the historical marker on Allen Drive in North Wildwood (Anglesea Borough), in New Jersey. It's located in a residential housing development on the northern tip of the island.

If you read the marker it states the "stone block below" but the ONLY stone block that we saw was the whitish-colored, small cement block that you see in the second photo located by the bush/tree line. I don't know if the "official" block is buried in the overgrowth of the bushes & trees or if that little cement block is what they're referring too.
