Atlantic City has a long and varied history. Though much has been written about the post 1977 casino years, and the heyday years of the 30’s and 40’s when the Atlantic City Boardwalk was the in place to be seen, there is a wealth of rich history which dates back over two hundred years before the first dice were thrown or the first jitney hit the pavement.
By the census of 1900, there were over 27,000 residents in Atlantic City, up from a mere 250 just 45 years before.
