Visitor Tips and News About Milk Jug Lady - Gone
I came past the Milk Jug Lady's home and noticed it was for sale and the displays removed. Do you have information on this?[Cathy, 01/14/2009]
Haven't heard anything official, but the remaining flag display was composed of colored jugs when we visited in 2007. We wonder if they'll get a better price from a buyer without the jugs?
The people in Mizpah/Mays Landing who decorate with milk jugs are still at it. The place is located on Rt. 40 just east of the 42 mile marker. If you are heading east toward the beach, it is on your right. The sign says "Jug City, USA".[Linda Ramsey, 08/12/2000]
On my way to work, I pass by something that might be considered unusual. On Route 40, perhaps four miles (?) west of Mays Landing, is a family that fills empty milk bottles with colored water and makes various decorations with them. Among their creations is a U.S. flag that takes up about a third of the yard.[Ed Hilt, 10/10/1998]
That would be the home of Josephine the Milk Jug Lady, in Mizpah. Been getting reports on that evolving collection of colored milk containers since 1992. Glad to hear she's still there.
