Our History and Historic Communities Map

The area that became Wildwood had a long and rich history before the City's incorporation on September 1, 1995. This history begins with the earliest of settlers, nomadic Native Americans, who lived near the major streams and rivers, to some of the first settlers, whom many of the area's streets and roadways are named after them till this day. The City's Historic Preservation Commission has compiled concise descriptions of these historic communities that ultimately formed, and defined, much of the character of Wildwood and the surrounding area.
