    Historical Context

    The Brigantine Transit Company operated a trolley that ran from one end of Brigantine Beach to the other - a distance of just about 7 miles. The line opened in 1893.

    On June 27, 1895 the secretary of Brigantine Transit Company, George H. Cook bought the Brigantine Beach Railroad at foreclosure sale.

    On April 1 of the following year, the Brigantine Beach Railroad reincorporated as Philadelphia & Brigantine Railroad with George H. Cook as President. The Philadelphia & Brigantine Railroad then leased the Brigantine Transit Company.

    In 1897, the company went into receivership and was reorganized as the Brigantine Transportation Company.
