THE WHALERS COTTAGES
AT BATTS LANE
Your chance to tour the two beautifully restored, historic cottages that Chris & Dave Clemans have just donated to MAC! Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Owen Coachman House incorporates a c. 1700 “Whalers Cottage” — one of the oldest surviving structures in Cape May County. It was moved to this site in 1846 by Owen Coachman, a free Black man who purchased land here for a farm. A tour of this site brings to life the important story of our county’s free African American community in the years before the Civil War.
