Chuck Juechter, president of the Friends of HCSV, explains that "Oystering was a flourishing part of Cape May County history. Celebrating the tradition of enjoying oysters is an appropriate and enjoyable fundraiser for Historic Cold Spring Village." The shellfish became a popular part of Southern New Jersey tourism as early as 1801. Early Cape Island proprietor Ellis Hughes summarized the draw of Cape May in a Philadelphia newspaper as a haven for visitors who wished to "bathe in the sea, dine on oysters and fish, and drink fine liquors."
