The Wildwoods are located on an island at the southern end of New Jerseys expansive coastline. The communities of Wildwood Crest, Holly Beach, Wildwood, and North Wildwood (formerly Anglesea) have been luring visitors and vacationers to their shoresMoreThe Wildwoods are located on an island at the southern end of New Jerseys expansive coastline. The communities of Wildwood Crest, Holly Beach, Wildwood, and North Wildwood (formerly Anglesea) have been luring visitors and vacationers to their shores for nearly one hundred twenty years with magnificent beaches and the ever popular boardwalks. With more than two hundred vintage postcards, The Wildwoods looks back at the coastal towns in the early 1900s. Glimpse the long-lost natural beauty of Magnolia Lake and the primeval forests that gave Wildwood its name. See commercial fishermen leaving from the beaches of Holly Beach or the docks of Anglesea to practice their livelihood as recreational fishermen head out to sea on crowded party boats for a day of angling. Witness Fourth of July celebrations, baby parades, and automobile and yacht races. Visit the architectural styling of the early homes, churches, and schools, as well as the hotels that once provided accommodations to ever increasing numbers of vacationers.
