CapeMay.com is produced at 513 Washington Street, on the Washington Street Mall in historic downtown Cape May.
According to the city's 1890 map, a candy store occupied the site even then and was probably owned by Mr. Roth of Roth's Candyland. His son George ran the candy store until the 1980s when Bogle Brothers' Fudge Kitchen took over. As any one who walks the mall knows, they are very much still here and still selling fudge. The building, according to Wister Dougherty, whose family owned the building up until the 1960s when George Roth bought it, says he thinks 513 was constructed around 1903 or so.
The building served as the office for the Cape May Star and Wave for nearly twenty years, and later for the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Cape May. We took over the space in 2004 and currently share it with the Cape May Jazz Festival.
