Excerpt from Absegami: Annals of Eyren Haven and Atlantic City, 1609 to 1904, Vol. 2: Being an Account of the Settlement of Eyren Haven or Egg Harbor, and Reminiscences of Atlantic City and County During the Seventeenth, Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries; Also Indian Traditions and Sketches of the Region Between Absegami and Chicohacki

Several years elapsed before the city began to attract attention, even in Philadelphia. Some who had become interested despaired of success and abandoned further efforts to build up the resort. The railroad company struggled through adversities, hoping for that success which was sure to come in years later. To extend the popularity of the new resort, the company, in the beginning, began running one-day excursions from Camden, at the rate of one dollar for the round trip. In 1857 the excursion house was located on Atlantic avenue, between New York and Kentucky, north side, and it remained there until a building at the foot of Mis souri avenue was erected in 1870. A long platform was built along Atlantic avenue, for the convenience of the excursionists. The railroad track at that time did not extend below Illinois avenue. The platform referred to was the cause of the first difficulty between the railroad officials and the city authorities. The former claimed that they had full control of the avenue. Litigation fol lowed and was continued until 1881, when the difficulties were adjusted by the passage of an ordinance on June 13th of that year. This ordinance provided that the company should construct and maintain two tracks on Atlantic avenue the whole length of the same, in con sideration of which the company should keep the avenue clean and in good repair and furnish a sufficient quan tity of sand and gravel, free of cost to Atlantic City, to build Atlantic avenue to grade from curb to curb where soever the company's tracks should be extended, from Georgia avenue southwestward.
