George F. Boyer  (Con't. from Home page)

Running down the origin of the tree, sparked a tsunami of information as he talked to local residents and researched and collected old records. One thing led to another, and in January of 1962, Boyer was appointed to the city’s newly established historical commission and became the first president of the Wildwood Historical Society.

Tireless in his efforts to collect and preserve local artifacts, Boyer spoke to school and church groups as well as civic organizations, urging them to “act now…to gather those irreplaceable links with the past and preserve them for generations to come.” Founded by Boyer, Wildwood’s first historical museum opened in 1963, on the 2nd floor of the Municipal Building. In October 1976, the City of Wildwood honored Boyer for his “long and devoted service” by renaming the museum, the George F. Boyer Historical Museum. He passed away a month later, but his legacy lives on. The museum, now located at 3907 Pacific Avenue, continues to welcome visitors and locals alike, just as it did a half-century ago under Boyer’s care.

The nonprofit museum is made possible thanks to volunteers who dedicate time to our cause. We always need volunteers! To learn about volunteering, drop in during our open hours, call us or fill out the contact form below!
