up of Grandview Hotel, 1890
In 1920, a bath house was built at the beach. In 1925, an amusement park and dance pavilion was built
on the land between what is now the fishing pier and Beach Road.
In 1933, the storm destroyed nearly all of the buildings and the land was
used for fish camps by the fisherman of Fox Hill.
After 1940, another dance hall was built approximately where the fishing
pier is today. In 1948, a much
larger dance pavilion was built north of the fishing pier near Beach Road. Many famous bands of the day played here:
Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, and Jimmy Dorsey.
This pavilion was damaged by Hurricane Hazel in 1954 and was later torn
