  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

  2. Hello my name is Brian Bevans, and my family owned Bevans lane in middle river more than 200 years ago, I can not find any history of this land other than a property map and deed that shows that my family at one time owned a large piece of property and the survey map show many buildings and the property looks like it was a farm when my family owned it, If there is any known history of this land I would much appreciate anything you may offer, thanks
