Inscription.  The WJSRR’s North Wildwood Station, located at this site, was very busy during the growth of the southern part of the Borough in the early 1900s, but the tracks in North Wildwood were abandoned after the Pennsylvania and Reading Railroads merged during the Great Depression. The last northbound passenger train stopped here on November 4, 1993, and the New Jersey Ave. Right-of-way was sold to the City in 1950. (Marker Number S-7.)
