A resident in Cape May Court House (NJ) found a stone sign that had been discarded 80 years ago, when Cape May County‘s current courthouse was built. The sign identified the county clerk’s office in the former courthouse, which stood from 1865 to 1926. Cape May Court House resident William Brooks Morrison found the stone sign, and realized its historical value to local residents. The sign, which weighs more than 100 lbs., was broken in half and had to be repaired and polished before it was installed. A county seal and a plaque that bears the name of all past Cape May County clerks complements the sign.

“The sign is back where it belongs, and I hope people will come see it,” Rita Marie Fulginiti, the current Cape May County clerk, said. “It’s an important part of our history and heritage.”
