Welcome to History Notes, our weekly feature that looks at Egg Harbor Township history. Each week we get a chance to learn or reminisce courtesy of Lynn Wood of the Greate Egg Harbour Township Historical Society, who shares early photos of places in Egg Harbor Township with our readers.
Richard Collins, owner of Uncle Dick’s Market in Bargaintown, is shown in this article from the "Pleasantville Press” dated June 14, 1956 with winners of a recent stock car race. From left in front are Frank Leeds and Mel Halloway. Top from left are Tony Dell, Richard Collins and Hal Lewis. All the winners were presented large hams from Uncle Dick’s Market.
The next event for the Great Egg Harbour Township Historical Society will be 7 p.m. March 8. An Evening of Pure Irish will feature the Irish Celli Band, Irish dancers and bagpipers. The event will take place at the EHT Community Center, 5045 English Creek Road in Egg Harbor Township. Admission is $2 donation adults, free for students and GEHTHS members.
The museum is always looking for early photos of the township. Any questions, call 609-601-1223 or 609-335-3313.
