Borough Hall Historical Marker in North Wildwood

Last month we took a road trip down through southern New Jersey on the historical marker and lighthouse trail. We spent 4 days following the trail and learning a lot of history on the area. Millions of people drive by the historical markers and never look at them. We're trying to give attention to these markers and the history that you can learn by reading them.

While driving through North Wildwood in New Jersey we came across a brand new historical marker. Here's the information for it.

Borough Hall Historical Marker in North Wildwood

Borough of Anglesea 1885-1906

Borough Hall

In 1886 the first Municipal Building of the Borough of Anglesea was erected on this lot, known at the time as #318 Walnut Avenue. Built by Ellsworth Hewitt for $559, the 2-story building housed a council room, office and jail cell. When the Borough Government moved to 3rd & Central Avenues in 1903, the building was sold and converted to a private residence, but burned to the ground on April 14th, 1912.
