Significance: The Borough of Longport, incorporated in 1898, belong to that category of seaside resort towns that were established by developers during the late 19th century, after the areas were opened up by the railroads. While the other Absecon Island coomunities-- Margate and Ventor, located just south of Atlantic City-- were originally part of Atlantic City sharing the same developmental history, Longport the smallest and most southern of the towns on Absecon Island, developed independently. Today, Atlantic City has subsumed the island, claiming Longport as a suburb.
