A Brief History of Brigantine

In its 128 years of existence, the current City of Brigantine has gone through numerous name changes as well as several shifts in its form of government. In addition, the size of the Atlantic County-based municipality has grown over the years; a factor that only enhances its many tracts of commercial real estate.

In June 1890, residents of the island that sits on the eastern edge of what was, at the time, Galloway Township, approved a referendum to break away from that municipality and form its own governmental entity. That resulted in the creation of Brigantine Beach Borough later that same month. Just seven years later – in April 1897 – the borough was reincorporated as Brigantine City and that moniker lasted until April 1914 when the area became known as East Atlantic City. The current name and form of government were enacted in March 1924 when – along with the annexation of some additional land from Galloway Township – the shift was made back to Brigantine City.

The city’s name of Brigantine has a nautical origin as well as the municipality is named after the numerous shipwrecks off its coast. Many of these vessels were brigantines, a ship with two masts where only the forward mast is square-rigged, or perpendicular to the length of the craft. Despite the dangerous shoals sitting just offshore, Brigantine was a major shipbuilding center and was known for its salt production, distilled from seawater.

Related to its shipbuilding past, Brigantine also was known for its whaling efforts, with captains using the beach to launch their attacks on whales migrating north to New England. In an ironic twist, the city now is home to the non-profit Marine Mammal Stranding Center. Established in 1978, the Center assists sick and injured whales, dolphins, seals and sea turtles and has, since opening, rescued more than 3,500 sea creatures. More than 90 percent of those treated by the Center make a full recovery and are returned to the wild. The Marine Mammal Stranding Center also operates a Sea Life Museum with hands-on exhibits and offers marine ecology-based educational programs and college internships.
