Cape May County is an area rich in cultural history. Several of the towns and boroughs in the county have preserved their history by forming historical societies and Wildwood Crest is among them. The Wildwood Crest Historical Society and Museum began early in 1975. The daughter of Philip P. Baker (the founder of Wildwood Crest) had passed away earlier that year leaving all of her father\'s documents to the Borough of Wildwood Crest. In her will she stipulated that all of the documents were to be made available for public display.
