Notes
Survey number HABS NJ-1115
Building/structure dates: 1889 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1980 subsequent work
Significance: This building was constructed in 1889 as the Shoreham Hotel. In design, it was more closely related to 1840s style hotels, reflecting the architectural (and social) conservatism of Cape May in competition with other shore resorts such as Atlantic City. The exterior, guest rooms, and corridors remain quite unaltered, because of light use, continuity in ownership, owner's low budget, and respect for relatively spartan conditions of an 1890s hotel.
