LEARN ABOUT THE HISTORY OF ROCK ISLAND

The Egg Harbor Historical Society will present the history of Rock Island at the Kress Pavilion (7845 Church Street) in Egg Harbor on August 16 at 7pm. There will be a special presentation of the history of Rock Island long before it became a State Park. 

Tim Sweet, who has worked for years preserving lighthouses and telling the stories of Rock, Plum and Pilot islands, will discuss the history and Chester Thordarson’s effort to build an estate there.  Thordarson began purchasing Rock Island property in 1910, and was very interested in preserving the island’s natural beauty. 

Thordarson’s Boat House

The presentation will also include the story of an Egg Harbor family’s connection to the remote island.  

If you have never visited Rock Island you should.  The entire island is a mixture of naturally beauty, plus no cars are allowed!  It’s a kind of place that you will never forget.

If you are looking for lodging, we still have rooms available!  We are in walking distance to the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor.
