For the first time the stories of those who have loved the Chalfonte over the last 135 years have been collected to form a remarkable history of a hotel that is unlike any other. The hotel was built in the seaside town of Cape May, New Jersey, by a Civil War hero from the North and nurtured by a storied Virginian family who turned it into a quintessential, southern-style retreat. Also included are hundreds of historical photos to help round out an interesting and eccentric slice of American culture, architecture, and vacationing habits.
