Overview
The Wildwoods: 1920-1970 follows a path of progress and preservation in a beach community situated along the Atlantic Ocean in historic Cape May County. Starting out in the 1920s, vintage postcards illustrate this shore town's transformation from a sleepy seaside resort into a summer vacation hot spot. Look through a window into the past and see Zaberer's Restaurant in North Wildwood, the Starlight Ballroom on the boardwalk, and the Wingate Motel in the center of Wildwood.
