Located on the long stretch of Atlantic City shoreline, the Chicken Bone Beach is a memorable and historical spot. What made it notable is the fact that it has been the section designated for African-Americans during the segregation period, from the year 1900 to the 1950s.

The name came from the chicken bones that were left behind by visitors who come in during summers and packed fried chicken for their meals while at the beach. Prominent figures have visited the area, making it even more notable.

Today, the Chicken Bone Beach has been declared as a local historic site. This is fully noted and commemorated by the plaque that is placed to preserve the heritage and memory of the place.
