Historical Images: Tabernacle Baptist Church

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

This week's "Then and Now" features  located on the northwest corner of Eighth Street and West Avenue.

The building was the first of the images in last week's "Then And Now." Then, it was  original house of worship prior to being moved to where it stands today at Eighth Street and West Avenue in 1907.

The first image shows the church circa 1945. Take note of the steeple on the building and the stained glass windows.

The second image shows the church in 1973. The steeple is gone -- it had been removed in stages because of leaks that rotted out the wood. The windows had also been changed.

The church as you see it today was totally rebuilt starting in 1999. New windows were custom-made to replicate the originals and a steeple was returned.

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

The TBC was rebuilt beginning in 1999 by Dan Murray. Murray, a local builder, not only did most of the work, but he also raised over $400,000 to pay for the renovation. Dan deserves a pat on the back and recognition for his hard work.
