WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EGG HARBOR’S TOWN AND VILLAGE?

On February 24 at 2:30pm the Egg Harbor Historical Society is putting on a program at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor.  The program will discuss the establishment of the Town and the Village of Egg Harbor.

The town was formed in 1861 and mostly rural.  The village was formed in 1964 and encompasses the downtown area and close surrounding areas.

It should be an interesting discussion.  Donations are appreciated.
