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.
Pictured is the Richmond and Son Auto Camp and Park, which was on Mill Road in the Bargaintown section of the township in the early 1930s.
