    Name: Cape May 51st annual Victorian Weekend: World War II Lookout Tower
    Date: October 7, 2023 - October 8, 2023
    Event Description:
    Fear of German attack in 1942 was real when this tower was built, now the last freestanding World War II Lookout Tower in New Jersey. It was part of the immense Harbor Defense of the Delaware system known as Fort Miles, and now helps tell the story of Cape May’s role during World War II. Inside, a staircase takes you to the sixth-floor spotting gallery where Observers will answer your questions. Visit the Wall of Honor that pays tribute to local residents who served during World War II. Over 160 veterans’ photos are on display there. Changing exhibits highlight varying topics of history related to the tower. Stop at the eternal flame sculpture outside on the boardwalk for quiet contemplation. The tower is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
