| Somers Point incorporated in 1886, with George Anderson as the first mayor. In 1902 it became a city, with Enoch Higbee serving as mayor. The Italianate-style building was built in 1906, and reopened as a library in 2001. The original building had a balcony off the front second story window where officials would stand to deliver speeches. It had a simple bell tower centered on the roof. The bell served to notify firemen from 1909 on. Memorial plaques honoring those that served and died in World War I and those who died in World War II are seen at the front doorway of this building, located along Shore Road.
