Over $11k raised in Street Sign Auction 2020

Updated: Sep 15


To everyone who placed a bid or who helped spread the word about our 2020 Street Sign Auction, THANK YOU! This year and pandemic have been devastating for nonprofit museums everywhere, and we too have seen a reduction in visitors this summer. It’s thanks to our supporters for buying from our online store, renewing their memberships and participating in our fundraisers that we were able to keep our doors open this year. And an ESPECIALLY BIG THANK YOU to the City of Wildwood Public Works department for donating the old signs to us as they replaced them this year.


We are pleased to announce that this event helped us raise almost $12,000! Again, we can’t thank our supporters enough. We hope to have similar street sign auctions in the future, since there are certain streets in Wildwood that have not yet gotten new signs (such as Arctic Ave and streets west of Park). Keep following us on social media and at wildwoodhistoricalmuseum.com to stay in the know. Below is the list of winning bids for all 61 signs sold. Winners, please keep sharing photos of your signs displayed at your home in the comments!

We don’t have the tools to do so but please note that if you only want one sign of an intersection after you win it, and you have the tools to separate them, you are welcome to donate any signs back to us that you don’t want. Thanks again for your continued support!
