We can help

We'd like to help with Wildwood, NJ. This topic has come up a few times on our members listserve for the Recent Past Preservation Network. We are a national non-profit; Dan Vieyra, a professor at Kent State who has done a bit of research on your town, is our Ohio state rep.

We are working on documenting a similar town in Florida -- Treasure Island.

Check out our website and contact me at madridfrench@recentpast.org and we'll see what we can do.

Here are three articles about Wildwood written for my newsletter/website . These were written over the period of 1999 to 2005 and may be of interest to anyone who has been following the situation in the Wildwoods.


Also, here are a few photos of Wildwood's vintage neon signs. I shot these in 2005... many of these signs are gone now:
