The Ocean City Museum Society will have its second Annual Historic House Tour October 12th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Spend the day discovering the history of your favorite beach town as you tour several of Ocean City’s unique homes, cottages, and churches.

This tour will invite you into homes that sit directly on the bay offering stunning views to cottages that are named after longtime Ocean City families. A docent will be on site to share the history of each location. Whether you want to take a close look at the stained-glass windows that belong to one of the Town’s oldest churches, or you are interested in the traditions that took place in an Ocean City family home, we have something for everyone.

The Historic House Tour is a fundraiser that will help strengthen and grow the George and Suzanne Hurley Memorial Scholarship Fund. This scholarship is open to Stephen Decatur High School graduates who plan on furthering their education at Salisbury University, Wor-Wic Community College, or UMES. Annually, the Museum awards one student, who can effectively demonstrate through essay, the historical significance of a community member, landmark, or event. “By taking part in the Historic House Tour you are strengthening the longevity of our scholarship while celebrating the history of Ocean City”, said curator Sandy Hurley.

The tour will start at the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum where you will pick up your tour booklet which will include a tour map and information regarding each property. Tickets can be purchased the day of the event at the Museum. To purchase tickets in advance please visit or mail a check to: Ocean City Museum Society, P.O Box 603, Ocean City, Maryland 21843.
