Coffee & Bokeh

Morning Coffee at Congress Hall.

 

Please View On Black. Thanks!

 

For almost two centuries, Congree Hall has offered hospitality to locals and visitors of Cape May, New Jersey. It began life in 1816 as a simple boarding house for summer visitors to one of America's earliest seaside resorts. Its owner, Thomas H. Hughes, called his new boarding house "The Big House". The local people had other ideas, though. Convinced the building was far too large to ever be a success they nicknamed it "Tommy's Folly".
