  1. Hello there, wondering if you have anything on Cape May Beach/Park? This was located at the very end of Cape May Road (also known as River Neck Road once pass Cresent Yacht Club) on the point facing Middle River with Norman Creek and Hogpen Creek on either side of the land.

    Do you have anything on the Ferry that used to go across Middle River from Cape May Beach/Park over to Wilson Point?

    Would you also have anything on the Freudenburg’s Cape May Farm? This was located from Katherine Avenue off of Cape May Road all the way to the point of Cape May Beach/Park. This farm was owned by John Herman Freudenburg. He had two daughters: Helen and Anna Freudenburg. Helen never married, but Anna married a Lauenstein.

    I am interested in the history of where I live on Cape May Point Essex, MD. I have heard of these stories from elderly neighbors who have since passed away and would love some details – articles, pictures, etc.

    Thank you for your help, Kathy Hippler
