**Join us! Special Lecture: Saturday, May 23 at 11 am by guest speaker, Cheryl Woodruff-Brooks on Chicken Bone Beach**

The Atlantic City Historical Museum, presented by the Atlantic City Free Public Library, presents a new photo exhibit, Chicken Bone Beach — The Atlantic City Experience, in celebration of Black History Month. The exhibit was developed by the Atlantic City Library and Chicken Bone Beach Historical Foundation Inc. The Historical Museum is located on South New Jersey Avenue and Boardwalk at Garden Pier. It is open Saturday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.

The photo exhibit pays tribute to this famed Atlantic City beach - located at Missouri Avenue - which was the area where African Americans were encouraged to congregate at the shore from the 1930s to the 1960s. Visitors are also able to record their memories of Chicken Bone Beach when visiting the museum.

Miss Delaware Donates Shoe to A.C. Historical Musuem PDF Print E-mail
Heather Perez and Brittany Lewis 09.18.14 Miss Delaware Brittany Lewis – a 2008 Holy Spirit High School alumna and Brigantine native – donated one of the shoes she wore at last week’s Show Us Your Shoes Parade to the Atlantic City Historical Museum on Sept. 18.

Lewis paid tribute to Delaware, known as the Diamond State, by wearing sparkling platform pumps at the parade. Lewis, who graduated from Temple University and Wilmington (Del.) University, recently completed her first year with Teach for America in Delaware.

Her shoe is currently on display at the Historical Museum as part of an ongoing Miss America exhibit that also includes a shoe worn in last year’s Show Us Your Shoes Parade by then-Miss New Jersey Cara McCollum.

The Atlantic City Historical Museum, operated by the Atlantic City Free Public Library, showcases the culturally diverse, exciting history of Atlantic City in a nostalgic timeline. Visitors can enjoy exhibits of Garden Pier, Mr. Peanut, sand sculptures, casinos and the Summer of 1964 – along with vintage photographs and local artifacts.
