Bloody Historical


This group portrays pirates from the 17th and 18th centuries to give visitors a glimpse into the life of a pirate
using props, displays and stories. The waters between Sandy Hook and New York City were infested with pirates
and French privateers in the 17th and 18th century and many landing parties rowed onto the shore or up the
creeks and rivers of Central Jersey.
