St Marys By the Sea

Has actually been a retreat house or the Sisters of St.Joseph for many decades. My cousin still goes to retreat there, and it is at the very bottom / southern tip of New Jersey in Cape May Point.

A more recent view

Here is a more recent view of the Shoreham (now "St. Mary's by the Sea")

Trolley Tracks

If one looks up, you can see the trolley wire. These would be used for a trolley/streetcar system versus a heavier passenger train like the Cape May Seashore lines. Going right to the hotel entrance. Now that is convenience.

St. Mary By the Sea

In 1907 this structure housed a "home for aged and infirm colored people" according to a website hosted by the Sisters of St. Mary, who've owned the property for over 100 years.

Now a retreat for nuns
