Located just east of the Cape May Point Light House in what is now Cape May Point State Park, the bunker was built by the US Army Corps of Engineers during the early months of the Second World War.
It contained heavy artillery and was manned by a rotating detail of naval gunnery crews, who spent hours on end scanning the horizon for enemy surface ships and submarines. (In fact, a German U-Boat commander surrendered his vessel just off the coast of Cape May at the end of World War Two)
This bunker was part of a coastal defense system during World War II. In front of this bunker were 6" turrets and 155MM guns. The bunker was originally 900 feet inland. Coastal erosion had taken it's toll on the beach.
