SCCA-NNJR - August Region Update
History Hiding in Plain Sight!
RE Update - By Peter Schneider
For those of us that were born and raised in Northern New Jersey in the late 50s and early 60s anything south of the Mason-Dixon Line seems like a world apart. Grits, Biscuits/Gravy and Hush Puppies were as exotic as Escargots from Paris or Takoyaki from Osaka. Little did I know back then, that just 100 miles south, below the “Mason-Dixon Line’ in Cumberland County, Southern New Jersey, a whole different world existed from where I grew up in the suburbs of New York City.

With international travel severely limited over the past two years, my wife and I looked closer to home and recently return from a short midweek trip into wilds of Cumberland County.

Many of us think of South Jersey as only the summer vacation getaways of Long Beach Island, Atlantic City, the Wildwoods or Cape May. But only 20 miles west of the Garden State Parkway are hidden gems of Jersey’s past. Towns like Bivalve, Port Norris and Millville along the Maurice River that empties into the Delaware Bay. 

Bivalve (once dubbed the Oyster Capital of the World) is just 10 miles south of the New Jersey Motorsports Park and was once the hub of the booming Delaware Bay Oyster industry.
