James Long, an absentee owner, purchased a parcel in 1857 that grew over the years as sand accumulated and as additional property was purchased. Acquired by M. Simpson McCullough in 1882, the community was named Longport in honor of Long.
Longport was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 7, 1898, from portions of Egg Harbor Township.
In 2014, residents of Seaview Harbor, located across Beach Thorofare, submitted a petition to join neighboring Longport, citing lack of access to the rest of Egg Harbor Township and high taxes. In November 2016, the Township Committee voted to deny the secession plan.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 1.560 square miles (4.040 km2), including 0.385 square miles (0.998 km2) of land and 1.175 square miles (3.043 km2) of water (75.31%).
Longport is located on the southwest corner of 8.1-mile (13.0 km) long Absecon Island, along with Margate City, Ventnor City and Atlantic City to the northeast.
Streets at the southern end of the borough start at 11th Avenue, as the 180 acres (73 ha) that made up the ten numbered streets below it were washed out on the barrier island by a series of storms between 1900 and 1916. The Great Egg Harbor Inlet shifted north, and Ocean City island was extended by what is now the Gardens neighborhood of that city.
