According to local historian and mayor, Michael Cohen, the first recorded private landowner was Thomas Budd, who settled a claim against the Lord Proprietors of New Jersey in 1695. In the claim, he was awarded 1,500 acres of land, of which a large portion was located on Absecon Island. He later sold most of the property at cost of four cents an acre. (Cohen, Longport: The Way We Were). Years later, in 1854, Samuel Overshine purchased a parcel of land containing dunes that built-up at the southwestern end of the island for $130. That same year he sold a parcel of that land for $10 to Isaac Barton. Three years later, Barton traded what was known as Lot 32 for a total of $2,000 plus land in Arkansas to James Long.

Long kept the property for 25 years and over the years, his property value increased in both value and size. His property increased by a little more than a mile in length after accumulating sand from an erosion updrift from Atlantic City between 1870 and 1880. He never came to see the land he purchased, nor did he decide to develop it. Although, he came back to Longport several years later and purchased an entire block of land, between 12th and 13th avenues, where he built a home on the beach. Long named it the ?Bide-A-Wee.? By the turn of the century, the home was sold and became a sanatorium. The building was destroyed by a storm in 1914.

Today, this quiet little Jersey town minutes from Atlantic City lies on the other end of the spectrum when it comes to bustling crowds. The perfect destination for a quiet family times together, Longport residents can immerse themselves any day in a frolic of swimming, surf fishing, rafting and a fun game of tennis.
