Egg Harbor City

Rich in local history, Egg Harbor City is also a jumping-off point for nearby Atlantic City (just 18 miles away) as well as for a number of Atlantic County historical attractions and entertainment opportunities.
 
In the mid 1800s, Egg Harbor City was a magnet for Germans living in the Baltimore area. They moved here en masse and infused an Old World feel into their New World home.
 
The Historical Society’s Roundhouse Museum has displays that cover the city’s Teutonic history, its time as a health sanitarium (the Roundhouse once belonged to a Dr. Smith, who touted the town’s therapeutic waters)
 
There's also glassworks displays and information on the town’s oenophile background (there were 96, mostly mom and pop, wineries located here at the turn of the century!).
