Notes
Survey number HABS NJ-1047
Building/structure dates: 1890
Significance: The Wildwoods, developed in 1890s, have never claimed to be anything other than what they were, four tightly packed communities relying on summer tourist patronage. The area developed its personality in the 1950s, experiencing a new surge of tourism with the completion of the Garden State Parkway. Today, in contrast to Stone Harbor's insistence on repose and good taste, the barrier island just south "welcomes the world" to a wide assortment of boardwalk amusements, restaurants, and resort motels.
