As of the 2010 United States Census, the resident population was 291, reflecting an increase of 50 (+20.7%) from the 241 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 7 (-2.8%) from the 248 counted in the 1990 Census. The summer population can be as much as 4,500.Cape May Point is home to the Cape May Light, though Lower Township claims that this lighthouse is located in that municipality.Cape May Point was called Stites Beach until 1876 when the name was changed to Seagrove. It was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 19, 1878, from portions of Lower Township, based on the results of a referendum held three days earlier. It was reincorporated on August 19, 1891 and returned to Lower Township on April 8, 1896. Cape May Point re-emerged as an independent municipality on April 6, 1908, based on the results of a referendum held on April 21, 1908. The borough's name derives from Cape May, which was named for 1620 Dutch captain named Cornelius Jacobsen May who explored and charted the area between 1611–1614, and established a claim for the province of New Netherland.
