with local historian Robert Holden, author of Upper Township and its Ten Villages, published by Arcadia Publishing in 2020. This is the second part of a two-part series exploring the history of Upper Township’s ten villages. Upper Township (after being known as the Upper Precinct of Cape May County since 1723) was founded in 1798 by John Townsend, but actually, the area was first inhabited by the Lenni Lenape Indians, who lived there and hunted in the rivers and woods for food for hundreds of years.
