Historical Images: From 1895 Mayor's House to a Rooming House
Our weekly feature includes photographs from the Ocean City Historical Museum collection and from the modern era.
This week's "Then and Now" features the home located on the northwest corner of Seventh Street and Wesley Avenue.
The home shown in the first image was built circa 1890 for Robert Fisher, who was among Ocean City's first year-round residents. Fisher was a native of Ireland and served as mayor in 1895.
As shown in the second image, the home still stands, although its appearance has changed a bit. Today, it is used as a rooming house for seasonal workers.
