HISTORY

The Historic Saint Peter's-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church is at  the junction of Ocean Ave. and Lake Drive in Cape May Point, New Jersey. It was originally built for Philadelphia's 1876 Centennial Exhibition, then moved to Cape May Point in 1879. The church has been moved four times since, first to get a cooler location closer to the shore, then, as the shoreline retreated, to safer locations away from the shore. It is now near the original site, and much closer to the shore.


The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
