Stone Harbor, New Jersey!
Together with its neighbor Avalon, Stone Harbor occupies Seven Mile Island. Unlike other beaches on the Atlantic Coast, Stone Harbor is a much younger beach! In the late 19th century it was developed as a beach town along local railroad lines. It was hoped that it would become a resort spot for wealthy residents of Philadelphia seeking a second home by the shore.
Today it is home to nearly 1100 full-time residents. Stone Harbor attractions include The Wetlands Institute, the Stone Harbor Bird Sanctuary, and the Stone Harbor Museum.The Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, maintain the Villa Maria by the Sea convent, which opened in June 1937. The beachfront along the Villa is called Nun's Beach and is popular with surfers. Our poster features on of the many nautical birds that live and nest at the bird sanctuary!
