OC Lifesaving Station Celebrates Ocean City History Week

The Ocean City Life Saving Station Museum is winding up their fall celebration of Ocean City History Week. This celebration will run from October 10th-16th and all Eastern Shore locals get free admission throughout the week and weekend.  History Week offers a variety of events and activities that highlight the town’s unique cultural heritage here on Maryland’s coast.

Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum displays the rich history of OC.

If you live on the Delmarva peninsula, stop by and enjoy the museum free of charge. Capture the perfect family photo with our display of fall flowers, pumpkins, and hay located on the boardwalk in front of our shark display and anchor. Free programs will be offered every day at 1 p.m., as the museum takes a close look at the equipment that was used by the United States Life-Saving Service to conduct rescue. The “HISTORY OF OUR SURFMAN” programs will be held inside the museum’s boat room.  There are other activities at the museum that will be of interest to history buffs, so please check out the museum’s full calendar here: https://www.ocmuseum.org/events
