Historic Galloway: Deer Season in Oceanville

Welcome to Historic Galloway, The Current’s weekly feature that looks back through Galloway Township history. Each week we get a chance to learn or reminisce, courtesy of Sarah Snow, librarian for the Galloway Township Historical Society. She shares information and early photos online and in print.


The Galloway Township Historical Society has most of the hunters in this photo at least partially identified, and along with representatives from the larger Oceanville families are less-common names such as DeSantis and Churchill. Do you recognize anyone from this picture of the 1955 Oceanville Gun Club?

The museum is seeking old pictures, documents or items from Galloway’s past. The Historical Society will scan and copy them. Other items can be loaned or donated to the museum.

The Historical Society Museum is open 11 a.m.-2 p.m. every Saturday in front of the Municipal Complex, 300 E. Jimmie Leeds Road.
