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.
The original West Atlantic City School was located on the corner of Palermo Avenue and Verona Boulevard. This new brick building was built in 1929 on Toledo Avenue for a growing population. The first school was then used by the WAC volunteer fire company until its newer building was completed in 1958 on the Black Horse Pike. This brick West Atlantic City school was demolished in September 2004.
