History of Egg Harbor Program

The Egg Harbor Historical Society will host a winter program on Feb. 22 at 3 pm at Shipwrecked in Egg Harbor.

The EHHS will present a program covering the downtown area of the village, concentrating on the Kewaunee House and expanding out into sites surrounding the old Kewaunee House. The Kewaunee House continues, as it started in 1882, providing food, beverage and rest for travelers, whether arriving in the harbor by schooner or stage coach in the early years or motoring in a sleek auto or yacht of today. The Kewaunee House evolved over the years into the Harbor Inn, Murphy Moore’s Harbor Inn, Thimbleberry, Blue Iris, and now Shipwrecked. Being the hub of the village through its history, the site has seen about all there is to the village’s history. The historic society’s program is open to the public. Shipwrecked will remain open.
