County is Working to Preserve its Historic Assets

Gloucester County is diligently working to preserve its historic assets, using federal grants and Capital Improvement Project funds. Over the next year, residents and visitors will notice quite a bit of work being done in and around the historic buildings throughout the court circle. According to Katey Legg, Director of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, “the extent of the work will be determined by the additional funds we can raise through grant writing and seeking donations.” 

Now is the time to make plans for Independence Day!

Fireworks can be viewed from the Gloucester Point Beach on Monday, July 4th. The fireworks display is presented by York County and will light up the sky above the York River.

Please remember to be courteous of the park grounds and only park in designated parking areas.
