People traveling through Hammonton have recently noticed increased activity outside the Historic Hammonton Train Station on Egg Harbor Road.

“The wait is over,” said Chamber of Commerce president Glen Ann Stoll. “Thanks to the cooperation of New Jersey Transit and the Town of Hammonton, along with Chamber Trustees, we have begun the restoration process.”

This process will entail exterior work on the wood and masonry in this edifice that was built in 1926 and restored in 1996.

“This is a building of historical significance, consequently we must abide by specific parameters,” said Chamber trustee and general counsel Bob Bucknam. “This includes matching original architecture and amenities, as well as hiring only firms qualified to perform historical restoration work.”

Weather permitting, this exterior stage is scheduled to be completed early this month.
