About Woodbine, New Jersey
Situated in north-central Cape May County, Woodbine was first established in 1891 as a settlement for Eastern European Jews escaping persecution, then was incorporated as its own borough in 1903. Almost in keeping with its founding purpose, Woodbine became the site of an American military airbase during WWII for anti-submarine operations to ward off the German U-Boats that frequented the east coast. Today, Woodbine is home to a diverse population of about 2100 people, providing its residents with a small-town atmosphere and a strong sense of community.
