Product Description

Before Long Beach Island was known as a summer resort there was Tucker's Island. This true, Atlantis-like tale begins with the tragic experiences of the first known settlers to the lost island south of present-day Beach Haven. Through this film we learn how New Jersey's first seashore resort came to be abandoned, reclaimed by storms, tides and shifting sand, and nearly forgotten. Featuring local historian John Bailey Lloyd, and the last living residents' memories of the final years of Tucker's Island.

We learn of the enterprising Tucker family who created a place for summer recreation and repose and a safe haven for wayward seamen, and of the father and son team of Eber and Arthur Rider who saw that the Little Egg Harbor Lighthouse stay lit for 63 years until the sea swallowed up the light in 1927.

Detailing the marvelous yet short history of this mysterious place, Tucker's Island tenderly recalls long ago summer days of childhood fun strolling through shipwrecks and abandoned hotels and evenings filled with laughter and good company. And, we learn how ''New Jersey's first seashore resort'' came to be abandoned, reclaimed by tides, storms, and shifting sand, and nearly forgotten.

Featuring Long Beach Island's renowned historian John Bailey Lloyd and the last living residents with memories of the final years of Tucker's Island...with narration by former Surflight Theatre director Guil Fisher and period music played exclusively by local musicians.
