Ship bell in the middle of Cape May

Cape May, NJ, United States
13 Kudos
We were walking on Washington Street Mall in Cape may and saw a huge bell. After reading a sign we learned that this bell served came from a ship called S.S. Cape May from 1943-1969. It has traveled all over the world and even and participated in the military actions in Europe during World War II. After the war the ship was used to carry cargo. After the ship was retired, the bell given to Cape May, because fo the name of the ship. Somewhat an unexpected encounter int he middle of the beach town, but as I always say "history is all around us"
