Thank you to Huffman Floors

The Society would like to thank Huffman Floors in North Cape May for their generous donation of floor material and installation at the Colonial House. For over 50 years, Huffman Floor Covering has put customers first and we can attest to that.

No homeowner is the same. Our little Colonial House needed a bathroom floor. We tried working with the big box stores but we were not a consideration since it was not a big job. Huffman Floors provided a unique, custom experience working with us to coordinate tasks prior to the installation. Come see for yourself what a fine job they did. We highly recommend you contact this local business for your floor needs. They did an amazing job. You won’t be disappointed. Stop in and visit Huffman Floors ( located at 3860 Bayshore Road, North Cape May (near the Post Office and Bacharach). Tell them we sent you!
