Inscription. Click to hear the inscription.  In February 1904 Borough Council, authorized construction of a Boardwalk on Surf Avenue from this point to the Borough’s southern border. It was removed just 8 years later due to the rapidly expanding beach, and a new Boardwalk was built closer to the ocean. Although a number of smaller Boardwalks had been built previously, the 1904 Boardwalk was the first to connect with its counterpart in Wildwood Borough.
 
Erected 1904 by Borough of Anglesea. (Marker Number S1.)
