CAPTURING CAPE MAY'S ARCHITECTURE:
The Making of a National Historic Landmark

April 27-Oct. 31, 2018

In the early ’70s, a team from the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) produced pen and ink drawings of this seaside town’s most significant historic structures that were instrumental in saving “the best-preserved late 19th century resort in America.” The drawings enabled Cape May to become a National Historic Landmark and a national tourist destination. Now, for the first time, these intricate drawings and the stories of the architects whose hands created them are on exhibit at the Carroll Gallery. Curator Karen Fox, author of "The Chalfonte," provides visitors with a unique look at how a small band of preservationists saved not only the buildings, but a culture of the past creating a future. Free admission.
