Significance: Brigantine Island is best known in association with Captain Kidd, who supposedly buried treasures on the island in the late 17th century. The island, gradually populated over the 18th century, developed dramatically as a resort in the 1880s when the railroad connected the island to the mainland, providing easy access to the area. Today, Brigantine exists as a suburb to Atlantic City.
