Atlantic Beach Hotel 2

The first Atlantic Beach HotelThe Atlantic Beach Hotel was the new name given to the Continential Hotel in 1913. Unfortunately it burned to the ground in a spectacular fire in 1919 on September 20th. A new hotel, also named the Atlantic Beach Hotel, soon replaced the wooden structure and remained in operation until the late 1960s. That hotel was quite a bit smaller as can be seen in the second photo below.

After the fire of the Atlantic Beach Hotel in 1919, a few items were salvaged, including adjacent area buildings that did not burn. A sink shaving/vanity mirror salvaged from the servants quarters has been preserved in our Foreman’s House building located here in Pablo History Park.
