Beginnings [1]

Gloucester County at one time extended from the Delaware River to the Atlantic Ocean and included what are now the counties of Camden, Atlantic and Gloucester. Atlantic County was created on February 7, 1837. Initially the county contained four townships: Egg Harbor, Weymouth, Hamilton, and Galloway. Mullica Township was later created out of Galloway, and Hammonton out of Mullica. Buena Vista was created from Hamilton in 1867 and Atlantic City set off from Egg Harbor Township in 1854.
