Images of City Hall From June 1914, From Circa 1925 and From Today

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

Ocean City's historic City Hall was designed by a local architect, Vivian Smith, who also designed the Flanders Hotel. The first photo shows City Hall under construction in June 1914. When it opened on New Year's Day in 1915, the ground floor was home to the Ocean City Police Department, complete with eight jail cells, as well as the Fire Department. 

In the second picture of City Hall, note the World War I memorial that is on the corner as well as the water fountain. The memorial was moved to Veteran's Park at Sixth Street and Wesley Avenue in 1947 after World War II. The water fountain, which was donated to the city in 1912 by the Women's Christian Temperance Union, remains on the corner. City Hall is on the National Register of Historical Places and is still home to the city government today.
