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.
Ladies from the Farmington Firehouse Auxiliary dined at Captain Starn’s Seafood Restaurant and Bar in Atlantic City sometime in the 1950s.
Among them (in no order since some are not identified) are Bea Thrasher, Edith Nelson, Nellie Dunlavey, Mary K. Sistler, Miriam Price, Anna Axler, Thelma Cavileer, Evelyn Myers and Virginia (Strickland) Herold. If you can identify the others, please let us know on the Greate Egg Harbour Township Historical Society Facebook page, where the picture is also shown.
If you have any early photos relating to Egg Harbor Township that would be appropriate for History Notes, please notify us by calling 609-335-3313.
Due to the coronavirus situation, the historical society museum is closed until receiving permission to reopen. However, the Community Teaching Garden is open and there are a few raised beds available. Please call 609-335-3313 or email GEHTHSMuseum@aol.com if interested.
