The Seaside Beach Resort was originally the cottage / entertainment side of Seaside Inn across the street, now Salty Towers. Seaside Inn was created by retired sea-captain Nelson Clark and his wife Maude in 1921. They purchased a block of lots on our side of the street in the 20's, and in the 30's, after their death, their daughter Marjorie and her new husband, Alfred Jones, a successful businesman, expanded the business under the name of Seaside Inn and Cabins. This side of the property offered bedsitting rooms in houses and cabins, and also a substantial entertainment grounds, with a fenced off swimming beach, observation tower, tennis, clock golf, quoits, croquet and ping pong.
