Manor Hotel Historical Marker in North Wildwood

On June 3rd, 2021, North Wildwood unveiled a brand new historical marker to honor the Manor Hotel. The marker was placed by the city of North Wildwood in New Jersey. If you're waymarking you'll find it displayed along the street on the side of a sidewalk between two residential homes. Here's the information on it.

Borough of N. Wildwood 1906-1917

Manor Hotel

Built at a cost of $200,000 and opened for the 1907 summer season, the Wildwood Manor had 200 rooms, 50 baths and two electric elevators. A walkway from the front door led directly onto the Surf Avenue Boardwalk. The Manor's Supper Club attracted many entertainers over the years, including Jerry Lewis, Liberace, Eddie Fisher and Mario Lanza. After extensive renovations in the 1950's, the Manor suffered a devasting fire on July 11th, 1968. 

We enjoy traveling and taking road trips. Every time we come across a new historical marker we like to photograph it and document it for our waymarking records. Once we get home we like to get onto the internet and research the information that we learned. It's a great way to learn more and preserve our country's great history.
