Historical Images: Lake Family Home at 17th and Wesley

Our weekly feature includes photographs from the Ocean City Historical Museum collection and from the modern era.


This week's "Then and Now" features a home standing on the northwest corner of 17th Street and Wesley Avenue. 

The home at 1644 Wesley was built for Marion Lake of the Lake family by a local contractor, Allen Scull. It is shown in the first image shortly after it was completed circa 1920.

The second image shows the home as it appears today. It was renovated and converted into a duplex in the late 1990s.

To see more historical photos of Ocean City, visit the Ocean City Historical Museum in the  at 1735 Simpson Ave.

It's nice to see a home updated to look like the original. Instead of being knocked down and rebuilt. The first home my family lived in when we moved here in 1966 was knocked down and replaced with 2 homes on the one lot. It's sad to drive down the street and you don't even recognize it as the street you grew up on.
