About Cape May

Cape May was named for 1620 Dutch captain Cornelius Jacobsen Mey who explored and charted the area between New Jersey and Delaware Bay. It is believed he first established a relationship with Native Americans in this vicinity, as they helped him survive his first winter here. He died the following year, but his descendants continued living along the shoreline on land purchased from the native tribesmen. The city's name translated into English means "May's Cape" or "May's Peninsula." The Kechemeche tribe of Lenape (or Delaware) Indians called it ""Chamassungh,"" meaning 'land of big meadows.' This area was part of their territory in that tribal confederacy known as Lenapehoking.
