Holly Beach City was a borough that existed in Cape May County, New Jersey, United States, from 1885 to 1912.
The municipality was first formed as Holly Beach, which was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 14, 1885, from portions of Lower Township, based on the results of a referendum held on March 31, 1885. The borough was reincorporated on April 1, 1890, based on a referendum held the previous day.
The borough was reincorporated as Holly Beach City on May 4, 1897.
On January 1, 1912, the area was included as part of the newly created Wildwood city, and the borough was dissolved.
A rather interesting history, wouldn't you agree?
