Egg Harbor City, NJ got its start as a refuge for those escaping anti-immigration violence. Founded in 1854 by German Americans from Philadelphia, the area was settled to give safety to Germans who were being persecuted by the “Know-Nothing“ Movement. For the next fifty years, the city remained German in both its language and culture. The city received its name for the gull eggs that were commonly found here.
Today Egg Harbor City has a population of approximately 4,200 residents and includes parts of Clarks Landing, Gloucester Furnace, and Gloucester Lake. The city provides NJ Transit service on the Atlantic City Line which connects the 30th Street Station in Philadelphia and the Atlantic City Rail Terminal. There is also a shuttle service between Egg Harbor City and Atlantic City International Airport. The city is also one of the South Jersey communities to home part of the New Jersey Pinelands
The city is a proud supporter of the Cedar Creek High School Pirates. The Pirates, in their forest green and maroon, are no strangers to championships. Their girls’ basketball program won the Group I State Championship in 2012. This was the first ever state championship won by Cedar Creek. Just three years later, in December 2015, the boys’ football team followed in the ladies’ footsteps by winning the Group II South Jersey Championship.
Renault Winery Resort and Golf also calls Egg Harbor City home. The 150-year-old destination is recognized as a NJ historical site and one of the oldest continuously running wineries in the United States. In addition to the winery, there is a Tuscan style hotel and a Championship layout golf course. The winery tours are an interesting take on local history and some notorious mafia links.
We at Hutchinson’s love coming to see the beautiful vineyards in the summer months, to provide someone with ac services when the weather climbs.
