Cape May Marks 150th Anniversary of Stockton Row

Cape May City Council marked the 150th anniversary of Stockton Row Sept. 17. Council thanked owners of the cottages

By Vince Conti

CAPE MAY – Cape May City Council issued a proclamation Sept. 17, celebrating the 150th anniversary of Stockton Row, one of the city’s unique Victorian-era enclaves.
Owners of the cottages, built in 1869, received thanks from the historically minded community for preserving Cape May history.
The eight cottages were part of a hotel complex built after the end of the Civil War. The Stockton Hotel used the cottages, essentially row homes, for guests who desired more privacy than the hotel could offer. When the hotel was demolished in 1910, the cottages were sold to individual owners.
The cottages survived the great fire of 1878 and the Ash Wednesday storm of 1962. They remain a part of Cape May’s treasured past.
