This temporary exhibit pays tribute to the decade of “The Stormy Sixties” focusing on events, lifestyles and growth of that tumultuous time. The 1960’s was a decade of change for America and also a very memorable decade for Ocean City. Although only one man, Hugh T. Cropper Jr., presided as Mayor during this time the Town went through a lot of changes and development. There were riots, storms, cool fashions, condominiums and as always, a whole lot of fun! In fact, the 1960 O.C. Bureau of Information touted Ocean City as “The Hospitality Resort with Family Fun at Family Prices”.




This exhibit should be a lot of fun for all of you “Baby Boomers” out there. Who could forget fun times at The Beach Club, sing-a-longs at The Irish House or your first trip to the newly opened Frontier Town or a ride through Trimper’s Haunted House?
