The saga of Ocean City's development is an
exciting and phenomenal success story. Nurtured from the

to establish a seaside resort after the great Civil War, Ocean
City has grown from two small cottages into what is generally
regarded as Maryland's second largest city during the
traditional summer vacation months.
