Bizarre History of Cape May: Lower Township’s borders have been constantly changing

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Jacob Schaad Jr. Thursday, May 15, 2014 05:20 pm

The Township of Lower, as it formally calls itself, has a peculiar geography that stretches from the ocean to the bay and that touches six of Cape May County’s 16 municipalities. Its history also shows that its early settlers believed in giving and taking back.

It was started as a precinct on April 2, 1723, but by Feb. 21, 1798, after the new nation was born, what is now commonly called Lower Township was among New Jersey’s fully certified 104 townships. Its land, so history has told us, has switched back and forth to others much like the game of Monopoly that was to be born out of Atlantic City years later.
