History of Holly Beach Train Depot

Holly Beach City was the original name of the middle section of the island known as 5 Mile Beach. It was incorporated in 1884 and consolidated with the Borough of Wildwood to form the City of Wildwood in 1912. The original Holly Beach Train Depot was located one block west of our store. Later, it was the Andrew Avenue Station.
